Flannels – a “luxury fashion destination” that is part of the Sports Direct group – is advertising for the manager of a new store in Brixton.

As the Blog revealed in August, Sports Direct bought the site fronting Popes Road and used by Brixton Rooftop for £11,750,000 in June last year.

Brixton Rooftop, the Popes Road shops and Casa Brixton have announced that they are closing at the site.

Sports Direct is also reported to be frontrunner to buy Brixton Market.

The new manager’s salary would be in the range £34,000 to £37,000.

The advertisement for the job says that “Flannels is the luxury fashion destination for men and women, home to an edit of over 200 brands from established international designers to contemporary labels. With an innate attention to detail and a timeless style, Flannels offers a luxury lifestyle that is as traditional as it is modern. Be it through our stores or website, we ensure an elegant simplicity, so nothing can detract from the brands we represent.”
