Why are city’s fanciest stores called Liverpool?

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 it was shipped via Liverpool, England, prompting Ebrard to adopt the name Liverpool for his store. In 1862 he opened a second store and since then it has continued growing into the major business we see today.
