Six new lettings at Trinity Walk shopping centre
The Wakefield shopping centre has scored six major new lettings and begun work on an expansion this winter.
Trinity Walk has welcomed Wakefield city centre’s first ever Starbucks with international jewellers, Nomination, opening next door. Tutoring group Explore Learning has taken space above Asda Living while Phonextra is taking the former Brookfields unit facing the market hall. Mobile phone network, Three, and VIP vapes complete the new arrivals, meaning the centre is now more fully let than ever since opening in 2011.
The deals follow the move by landlord Orion to buy in the nearby Westmorland House, which is currently to be transformed into an extension of the shopping centre. The complete refurbishment will see a new exterior facelift, utility works and larger units created around existing tenants who all remain open for business as usual including Bonmarche, Poundworld, Martin’s and Modern Savage.
Richard Low, head of retail at Orion, said: “It’s a challenging climate, which makes these new lettings even more pleasing as they offer more variety, more jobs and more reasons to shop, relax and learn. Trinity Walk is resilient and never stands still, which positions it well as a sub-regional shopping centre.
