Primark commits to Intu Trafford Centre’s £74 million transformation

The budget clothing retailer's newest store will anchor an expanded Barton Square which will gain a further 110,000 square feet of retail space once complete. The works will also include the building of a new glass-domed roof and a fully redesigned interior.

Set to open in 2019, Primark’s unit will incorporate space previously occupied by BHS Home. Other brands already in place at Barton Square include Sea Life Manchester, Legoland Discovery Centre and Next Home.

Colin Flinn, regional managing director for Intu, said: “This is a significant milestone for Intu Trafford Centre that will enable us to reposition and redevelop an important part of the centre so that we can create even better customer experiences and more opportunities for retailers to flourish.

“Intu Trafford Centre is already one of the UK’s prime retail and leisure destinations and known around the world for its unique design and architecture which was celebrated in a BBC Radio 4 arts documentary earlier this year. The work we are planning at Barton Square will attract more visitors for longer by expanding the centre’s retail and leisure mix and creating a new space befitting this architecturally-rich building.”

Work is due to start on site during the first half of next year.
