As Singapore sneakerheads anticipate the opening of JD Sports on our shores, the retailer has hinted that the launch may be just around the corner.
Although JD Sports Singapore has had its Instagram account since March, it has been fairly dormant until now.
On May 16, the official Instagram account @jdsportssg began posting images of sneakers such as the Air Max 1, Air Jordan 3 and the new adidas Arkyn, hinting that the first JD store will be unveiled soon in its caption.
After announcing back in March that it will be coming to Singapore, two locations have now been confirmed for JD Sports’ debut in the Lion City.
Known by many as the “Undisputed King of Trainers”, the sneaker retailer is confirmed to be opening at least two outlets in Singapore, specifically at ION Orchard and Jurong Point.
At ION, the store will be located at Basement 4. Currently, placeholder hoarding has been placed at where the store will be located with the words “Coming Soon”. The store will take on the units previously occupied by Jasons supermarket.
Besides ION, a listing on Jurong Point’s website indicates that another store will be “coming soon” at the West-side mall.
According to the listing, the store in Jurong Point will be located on the first floor at unit #01-34.
In March, JD conducted walk-in interviews for its first batch of retail staff, suggesting that an opening may be on the horizon by May or June.
Stay tuned for more updates.
