Trinity Leeds, the UK’s only major shopping centre toopen this year, has welcomed 2.7 million shoppers in its opening month, it has been announced.
The shopping centre, which opened in March, attracted 132,000 customers on its opening day, and 1 million in its first 10 days of business, and reaching 2.7 million visitors in the first month has beat the shopping centre’s predicted footfall target.
Alison Niven, Retail Operations Director for owner Land Securities, told The Sunday Express: “Footfall has been ahead of expectations, we expect to see 22 million people come through the doors in our first year.
“Leeds itself has seen a footfall increase of 20 percent week-on-week since we opened. Retailers opening in the coming months include Victoria’s Secret, Primark and Starbucks, and they will give us an extra mini-boost.”
Owned by property company Land Securities, the 378 million pound centre has created around 2,600 new jobs and provided a boost to the local economy.
