Gunwharf Quays is excitedly preparing for the arrival of Nike Unite Portsmouth, the brand’s community-focused concept that helps connect people with sport.
The new store sees Nike upsize from its existing 8,570 sq ft store at Gunwharf Quays to a 11,500 sq ft space, where it will create new in-and-out-of-store experiences that celebrate sport and the local community.
The Nike Unite store at Gunwharf Quays will encapsulate the Portsmouth community — from celebrating hometown athletes to carefully curated product selections that reflect the city’s interests. Nike Unite will support local schools and non-profits that give children more opportunity to stay active. It will also introduce the Nike Community Ambassador program, which trains employees to aid local community sports sessions.
Yvonne Clay, Centre Director at Gunwharf Quays, commented: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Nike Unite to Gunwharf Quays.
“Nike Unite stores are centred around their local communities – from featuring local landmarks in the store design, to partnering with local sporting organisations – and this is something that aligns perfectly with our values at Gunwharf Quays.
We are confident that our guests will love this exciting addition to Gunwharf Quays”.
Nike Unite will launch at the designer shopping outlet on Monday 11th April 2022. The store will open at 10am, with a ribbon cutting ceremony and an appearance from the Pompey in the Community mascot.
