History[edit]

Liverpool, first called The Cloth Case, was founded in 1847 by Jean Baptiste Ebrard, a Frenchman who first started selling clothes in cases in Mexico City's downtown. In 1872, he started importing merchandise from Europe. Much of the merchandise was shipped via Liverpool, England, prompting Ebrard to adopt the name Liverpool for his store, in 1862 he opened its second store and since then it has not stopped growing.

This three-story structure is clad in a double-layered stainless steel surface fabricated by Zahner.[2] The 30,000m2 department store includes a rooftop recreational park where friends, families, and pets are welcome.[3] Several design firms were involved in various aspects of the project. The interiors were done by FRCH, the rooftop garden by Thomas Balsley and the gourmet space by JHP Design.
