Grand opening for Flannels

UK chain makes Douglas debut

A UK clothing chain is opening its doors in the capital this morning.

Flannels, which is owned by Sports Direct, will be open daily as of 9am.

The store, which sells a range of higher-end brands, held an official launch party last night.

It's part of Sports Direct's acquisition of the Strand Centre in Douglas town centre last year.

The parent company is due to launch its Isle of Man branch later in the year.
