Sports Direct puts Lillywhites London lease up for sale


Sports Direct’s lease of the six-floor Lillywhites store on London’s Piccadilly has reportedly been put on the market.

The 97-year lease of the sports specialist department store, which has traded since 1925, has been put on the market as landlord Criterion Capital conducts rent review talks.

A sale could lead to the removal of the Lillywhites name from the 67,700 sq ft site.
