David M Robinson has signed a new lease that will keep its boutique on South John Street at Liverpool ONE open for an additional five years.
The lease renewal was signed this month after a negotiation with its landlord Grosvenor Europe. Terms of the new lease were not disclosed.
DMR was founded in Liverpool in the 1960s as a small jewellery workshop and has grown to become one of the UK’s most successful family-owned jewellers.
It is an authorised dealer for Rolex in each of its four showrooms in Manchester, Liverpool, London and Altrincham, Cheshire; and a Patek Philippe partner in London and Cheshire.
It was among a handful of businesses that have been present within the Liverpool ONE retail district from the beginning.
“Following our milestone 50th anniversary last year, we are delighted to confirm this lease renewal at Liverpool ONE which marks an exciting new chapter for DMR. With our heritage link to the city, and history at the destination, maintaining our bricks and mortar presence at Liverpool ONE is crucial to our business. We pride ourselves on the showroom experience we offer and the way we engage with our customers in this space. Liverpool ONE has the ability to attract visitors from all over the UK and further afield,” says John Robinson, managing director at David M Robinson.
Alison Clegg, Director, Asset Management, Grosvenor Europe, adds: “It’s a pleasure for Liverpool ONE to play a part in the local success story that is David M Robinson, and we’re pleased to have had the opportunity to build a relationship with the family business since the launch of Liverpool ONE. As part of its luxury DNA, David M Robinson has always placed great emphasis on providing the highest level of customer service, and in doing so, shown the importance of a physical retail presence for brands. The premium experience is a key aspect of our retail strategy for Liverpool ONE, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with David M Robinson as part of these plans.”
