Sports Direct opens in Douglas

Outlet on three floors at Strand Centre

UK retailer Sports Direct quietly opened its Isle of Man branch yesterday afternoon.

The so-called 'concept megastore' - which also includes sister fashion chain USC - is spread across three floors in the Strand Shopping Centre, Douglas.

It's the culmination of more than a year's redevelopment works, after the giant bought out the building last July.

Sports Direct, which is owned by the controversial businessman Mike Ashley, generated almost £280 million in profit last year.

The Douglas outlet will be open daily from this morning at 9am. (Sat)
