Landsec has announced that five leading retail and lifestyle brands have joined Trinity in Leeds, as part of its drive to secure regional debuts, relocations and upsizes into the destination for the best-performing brands in the region.
Nespresso is set to relocate to Trinity from its existing Leeds store in the New Year. Bringing new guest experiences to Trinity, Nespresso will operate its interactive boutique concept from the 1,300 ft unit – which has tastings, demonstrations and masterclasses – only available elsewhere in the UK at Bluewater.
Launching its regional debut at the destination, resale fashion brand Relic x Hooked has opened a bricks-and-mortar home on Albion Street to showcase its handpicked vintage sportswear and streetwear across 2,500 sq ft.
This news follows the opening of Space NK’s 1,700 sq ft Trinity store, doubling the size of the brand’s previous Leeds unit, and a first store in the North of England for MINISO, with a 3,100 sq ft shop. Levi’s has also relocated from elsewhere in Leeds city centre, signing for a 2,500 sq ft store.
Nik Porter, Head of Retail Brand Account Management at Landsec, commented: “Retail that provides a unique experience is essential for today’s consumer. This mix of new and best-loved brands bring great choice to Trinity that can’t be found elsewhere in the region, helping to create a place for retailers to succeed and to keep guests coming back.”
Daniel Wilmot, Director at Relic x Hooked, added: “We are very selective when searching for new destinations to launch our collaborative stores, as previous experience has demonstrated the importance of location and links to the local community. With Trinity’s impressive array of retail names combined with its strong independent offerings and emphasis on localism, there was no question that it was the perfect destination for us. Our strong online presence has allowed us to gain significant traction and we are excited to be taking our next steps into physical retail with our Trinity unit.”
