Record year for Wakefield's Trinity Walk

Wakefield’s Trinity Walk shopping centre enjoyed record footfall in 2015 with the number of shopping visits rising by 4% to 11.22 million.

The centre, which opened in 2011, also recorded its busiest ever week after welcoming around 289,000 shoppers in December during a seven day period.

Trinity Walk is now at its highest occupancy level after jewellery brand Pandora opened a 1,275 square foot store in early December, and stationery and book store The Works opened a 2,387 square foot shop.

Pandora franchisee Paul Rice said: “The launch of the new Wakefield store at Trinity Walk has been extremely successful. December saw us welcome a high amount of customers through the door and the feedback we received has been hugely positive. We’re very much looking forward to a great year in 2016.”

In addition to the retail lettings, Regus is to add to its portfolio with its first office opening in Wakefield in a 7,320 square foot unit at the centre.

Cormac Hamilton, centre manager at Trinity Walk, said: “The centre is now at its highest occupancy in its history with an even more diverse and dynamic mix of retailers on offer for shoppers, which has been a key draw.

“People are still discovering the centre and most new shoppers say they would return, which gives us scope to grow even further in our fifth year. We’re delighted with how well 2015 has gone, but won’t rest on our laurels as we aim to maintain and build on this great platform.”
