A designer trainer retailer has opened in a Glasgow shopping centre.

Empire Glasgow has moved back into a pop-up store in Silverburn.

We previously reported that Empire opened a temporary store at the Pollok shopping centre back in November 2022, adding to their existing Princes Square branch. 

Now Silverburn bosses say they have welcomed the retailer back due to the success of the previous pop-up. 

Empire sells a number of designer brands including Yeezys, Nike, Jordans, Dunks and more. 

It was the brainchild of a young entrepreneur Taylor who began reselling trainers on eBay in 2016 and recognised a demand for the products in Glasgow.

After operating online and through social media, Empire opened its first pop-up in the Merchant City in August 2019. 

A second followed in Princes Square in 2021 and its success led to the store having a permanent home in the city centre shopping mall.

The new Empire pop-up is located next to Chisholm Hunter in Silverburn's main atrium.
