Trinity, the Landsec retail and leisure destination in the heart of Leeds, has announced the opening of a new permanent shop for media and entertainment company, Sky.
The new shop forms part of Sky’s strategy to move into bricks and mortar retail, to deliver an enhanced customer experience and showcase the wider Sky offer. Bringing Sky’s innovative pay TV, mobile, and broadband products under one roof..
Comprising 3,040 sq ft in total, the shop is Sky’s largest to date and the first in the region, with other stores announced for The Mall at Cribbs Causeway, Glasgow’s Buchanan Street, and Livepool One.
Commenting on the signing, James Hutchinson, portfolio manager at Landsec, said: “In an omnichannel world of retail, Sky’s new retail strategy highlights the benefits of physical retail spaces which focus on a redefined customer experience. It is testament to Trinity’s draw, as the prime retail destination in the heart of Leeds, that Sky have chosen the centre to open not only their biggest shop to date, but also the first within Yorkshire.”
Matthew Price, Retail Director, Sky UK, commented: “Sky has a long and positive history with Leeds. With our major technology hub just around the corner at Leeds Dock, it made sense to open our largest Sky shop yet in the heart of the city. Throw in the city’s growing and diverse population, and it was a no-brainer to build our retail presence here. The space at Trinity is the best place to showcase everything Sky can do, and we are delighted to have opened this experiential shop to new and existing customers.”
