Lids opens largest concept store to-date in Las Vegas
Global sports retailer Lids announced on Friday the opening of a new flagship store in Las Vegas, marking the retailer's largest concept store to date.
The new two-story Lids location spans 12,000 square feet and will house over 50,000 units of fashion and sports merchandise, including officially licensed product representing top local teams like the Las Vegas Raiders, Las Vegas Golden Knights, Las Vegas Aces and more. This Lids location will also feature autographed NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, MLS, WNBA and collegiate merchandise from Fanatics Authentic and Upper Deck in a dedicated section.
Moreover, the store will offer Lids' signature Custom Zones, which allow consumers the opportunity to custom-embroider a product of their choice in-store. The store will also carry apparel brands such as Nike, adidas, Under Armour, Fanatics, Retro Brand, Champion, Colosseum, Antigua, Mitchell & Ness, and more, as well as Wincraft, Tervis, and Funko, and headwear brands '47, Pro Standard, and New Era.
Other unique features available only in this location include a digital exterior façade, shop in shops from a variety of sports leagues, two large-scale LED screens designed to showcase prime time games, and upcoming in-store athlete signings and other initiatives.
"Opening our newest and largest Lids store to date in the heart of Las Vegas was an obvious choice for us as the area is a shopping destination known around the world," said Britten Maughan, president at Lids.
"The new flagship offers ample product offerings to residents and visitors alike, no matter your team affiliation, whenever you're shopping on The Strip. Furthermore, it's a look at what's still to come from Lids as we continue to expand Lids' footprint domestically and abroad.”
Lids has been carefully expanding its brick-and-mortar presence. It recently announced a new collegiate product focused retail concept, Lids University, in July, and operates several other concept stores including Locker Room by Lids and team-specific stores such as Yankees Clubhouse and Dodgers Clubhouse.
To date, it operates over 1,500 stores throughout North America, Europe, and Australia.
