JD Sports‘ 10th Canadian location is set to open at CF Polo Park on Saturday, November 19, 2022.

The global leader in sports fashion will open on the second floor as the mall continues to seek out exclusive stores for Manitoba. The UK company started in Manchester in 1981 and is in 32 countries around the world. It has been in Canada for only a year.

At 8000 square feet, the new store is fairly big and carries most of the big sports brands. The company is focused on local partnerships and promotion compared to some other retailers who are more nationally branded.

CF Polo Park has been trying to regain some big names as competition from St. Vital and Outlet Connection at Seasons has been keenly felt these last years.

The store will also hold on-site raffles for limited sneaker releases.
