Discount high street fashion retailer, Primark, has announced the sign up of a new space in the Trinity Leeds shopping centre. The 90,000sq ft store will be the largest space allocated to a single fashion retailer at the new Trinity Leeds development due to open in two years.
Trinity Leeds is being constructed by Land Securities. The huge Primark outlet will serve as an anchor where 58% of its trading space is already pre let, despite the challenging retail forecast.
Richard Akers, Managing Director for Retail at Land Securities, said: “There’s a real sense of excitement in the city about the Trinity Leeds development and its investment in Leeds."
"You can already see that it is transforming the city and people are eagerly awaiting the opening. Primark’s new store has just increased the anticipation.” Land Securities took on the project predicting that once the development is complete, Leeds will jump from seventh to fourth in the UK retail rankings. Akers continued: “The store will attract many shoppers from across Yorkshire and further afield. And it’s another milestone for the
project and a real demonstration of our strong relationship with
“Last year, we announced major new stores in Sunderland and Livingston creating great spaces for the popular brand. Together we’re showing confidence in this great city.”
This will be the first shopping centre to open after Westfield Stratford opens this September in time for the Olympics.
