SportsDirect will become the latest addition to Stocksbridge's Fox Valley when it opens at the shopping centre this week.

The national chain will welcome customers to the 11,000 sq ft unit for the first time on Friday (April 8).

There will be a specialist sport area for Field & Trek, Soccerscene Football, Direct Golf, Dragon Carp Fishing and much more to provide customers with the widest possible range of top brands.

It will also include a section for the USC fashion retailer in store, stocking brands such as G-Star, Hilfiger Denim, Levis, Converse, Calvin Klein, Luke, Lacoste, Emporio Armani, Pretty Green and Jack & Jones.

The shop will create 17 new jobs.

A Sports Direct spokesman said: “We offer something for everybody and we’re very proud to open a store in a great location like Stocksbridge.

“The store is part of our commitment to developing elevated sports and lifestyle retail space, catering for greater integration of key brands.”
