Sports Direct: Fashion chain opens large new store in Sheffield city centre

​​​​​​​Sports Direct has opened a large store in the former TJ Hughes department store on The Moor.

The new shop will be a shot in the arm for The Moor which is today Sheffield’s premier retail zone but has suffered closures including a Jack Fulton frozen food and a Bright House.

Last summer the company submitted plans to Sheffield City Council to erect signs for Sports Direct, USC, Game, Adidas and the Nike logo, stating the shop on The Moor would be converted into a ‘USC and Sports Direct’.

Local shopkeepers said the launch date had been pushed back to July because of a problem with the sprinklers.

The company did not respond to The Star.

It is set to close its existing store at 50 High Street in July and discount supermarket Lidl will take over two floors of the seven-floor building.
