The boy band will be the stars of a brand new shop, open for three weeks only in Trinity Leeds shopping centre in Leeds, England, from Saturday March 23.
Following on from the success of their pop up stores in New York, Sydney, Brisbane, Toronto, Vancouver, Chicago and most recently Stockholm, British fans will finally be able to get their hands on a piece of merchandise of their favourite heartthrobs Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne.
The pop up store will span 5,000 square feet and will be a hub for exciting competitions, offers and merchandise bundles.
1D World Leeds will feature items never before seen on the UK market, ranging from T-Shirts to posters, phone cases, caps, calendars and life-size cardboard stand-ups.
The famous 1D Onesie will also be on sale, plus some exclusive products exclusive to the Leeds store.
News of the latest '1D World' pop up store comes after the boys were immortalized as waxworks by Madame Tussauds in London, and after their likenesses are unveiled in the UK on April 18, they will then be dispatched to the famous lookalike company's other branches across the globe.
Harry said: "We're just kind of a bit overwhelmed. We've been to Madame Tussauds and seen the kind of people who are in there. It's crazy to think that we will up there with them."
