Primark Has Confirmed The New Opening Date For Its Massive Trafford Centre Store

By Laura O'Neill

Primark has confirmed the opening date for its new shop at the Trafford Centre.

The budget fashion retailer will open its new outlet at Barton Square on 15 June 2020, the retailer has confirmed, in-line with the government’s current guidelines for the re-opening of non-essential stores.

Set against the backdrop of the shopping centre’s £74million Barton Square development, the two-storey Primark was originally due to open last year. However, the shop previously released a number of adverts recruiting for staff which revealed that the store will open in March 2020. The second opening date was, of course, affected by the Coronavirus outbreak in the UK – and will now officially open its doors alongside the re-opening of Primark stores nationwide.

The store, which is currently only available at the Trafford Centre as a small concession, will be spread over two floors, spanning 65,000 sq ft in total, according to the job ads.

A spokesman for the Trafford Centre said the new store will ‘anchor’ an expanded and refreshed Barton Square, which is in the process of gaining another 110,000 sq ft of extra shopping space, a new glass-domed roof and a fully redesigned interior.
