For Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s customers, a new store promises the best souvenir of the city: something made-here!
The Liverpool owned gift shop, ‘made-here’, is opening a branch in Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA) to ensure that when visitors head home, they can take a little piece of Liverpool with them.
Arriving soon in the Departures Lounge, the local independent retailer celebrates the best of the city’s home grown arts, crafts, jewellery, gifts & accessories and has just completed its first year trading in the city centre (initially as a pop-up in Liverpool ONE and now on the first floor of Metquarter). This new, additional, location will offer visitors to the city something to remember Liverpool by. Something that has Liverpool at its heart.
Founder of made-here, Kate Stewart said: “We’re passionate about marketing the talent that Liverpool has to a wider audience. Keeping money you spend in the city is the best way to support and showcase its entrepreneurial spirit.”
“Opening at JLA celebrates the success we have had over the last 14 months of selling to tourists and visitors to the city who are always delighted with the range of products we have on offer, but more importantly, it’s a platform for us to show, to the world, just what a creative place Liverpool is.”
Lucy O’Shaughnessy, Retail Director for Liverpool John Lennon Airport added, “We are very excited about going into a summer season with a new local offering. The ‘made-here’ brand and product range is all about celebrating the city of Liverpool. It complements the rest of our High Street retail brands and gives passengers an opportunity to take a locally sourced product home or to friends when they fly from here.”
