Nike Unite, the latest retail concept from iconic sports brand Nike has opened its doors at Blanchardstown Centre, Dublin’s largest retail and leisure destination. A first-of-its-kind in Ireland, Nike Unite puts the community first, aiming to help local people connect with sport. The unit features an in-store community wall, celebrating Dublin athletes and sporting achievements, as well as local landmarks and partnerships.
Signed on a ten-year lease, the store spans 10,000ft² in total and caters to all – stocking Nike’s latest sports, fashion and footwear ranges for men, women, teens and kids. It will serve to strengthen Blanchardstown’s athleisure offer – situated next door to JD Sports’ flagship store and adjacent to popular brands such as Lifestyle Sports,Skechers and Schuh.
Sharon Walsh, Leasing Director at Falcon AM, asset managers for Blanchardstown Centre, commented: “We’re incredibly excited that Nike has chosen Blanchardstown Centre for the opening of Ireland’s first Nike Unite store. A compelling in-store experience is increasingly important to consumers and this new concept speaks directly to that. The community focus and experiential element offers something different – and will act as a real draw. Alongside a host of other exciting signings over the past 12 months, today’s opening attests to the resilience of Ireland’s retail market and the ‘prime’ space the centre offers. Occupancy remains high and we have seen strong footfall since the beginning of the year – as customers visit the centre to enjoy our diverse mix of retail and leisure brands.”
