Oct 13, 2023 | All News, Community

We are delighted to announce our Christmas pop-up shop will be returning to Larne Main Street from next month, earlier and better than ever before.

As a result of customer feedback requesting a bigger premises and longer opening hours, our 2023 pop-up shop will open several weeks earlier, with a mid-November opening date to be officially confirmed in the coming weeks.

This year, the club has secured a new premises which will be located at 1A Upper Main Street, BT40 1SY. This space was formerly the location of Johnstone’s Paint on the Main Street and is directly across from our club partners, Duos Fast Food.

Operating out of this location means that this year’s pop-up store will be our biggest premises yet and is also placed next to one of the town’s biggest and most accessible car parking units at Riverdale.

To match this increased space, the store will boast our most diverse product range to date. From Nike replica shirts and training wear, a brand-new 1889 range, stocking fillers amongst many other miscellaneous items – there will be something for everyone this Christmas.

In the coming weeks, we will also be launching our latest retro shirt, which supporters will be able to get their hands on exclusively through our pop-up and online stores this Christmas.

General Manager Shay Kennedy commented:

“The club is delighted to have secured a prime location on Larne Main Street throughout November and December. This year, we will be opening in mid-November, which based on customer feedback will give everyone, including the early shoppers, the chance to call in and pick up their favourite Larne FC items.


“As an operations team, more work than ever before has gone into the design and ordering of new products and as a result we are going to be able to offer our most extensive range of merchandise to date. We will have all your traditional favourites and plenty of new items on offer and I am extremely confident that the people of Larne will love what we have for them.


“Alongside our pop-up store, we are working towards putting processes in place to improve the online shopping experience this Christmas, which I know will be a major boost for our out of town and overseas supporters.


“We look forward to getting opened up next month and can’t wait to enjoy the buzz of Larne Main Street throughout yet another Christmas period.”

Further details regarding an official opening date will be announced in due course.
