There are 1,131 stores in the US, Puerto Rico, Canada and the UK, with High Wycombe soon becoming the latest.

Currently, the closest Lids stores to Wycombe are at Midsummer Place shopping center in Milton Keynes and on Neal Street in London.

The retailer recently opened in Derby’s largest shopping centre, the Derbion.

As of this writing, there are no job advertisements for the High Wycombe branch, but the store says they are “opening soon”.

The Bucks Free Press has contacted Lids to find out when you can expect the new store to open.
