The colossal £350m investment in the Leeds retail sector appears to be paying off, with 12 million shoppers being enticed through Trinity Leeds’ doors since opening in March. Following the opening of a new Primark store in December, the scheme will have created 3,000 jobs.

It is also thought to have given the city centre a boost, with footfall increasing by over a million since its launch. Councillor Keith Wakefield, leader of Leeds City Council said, “Trinity Leeds has provided a huge boost to the city’s already impressive retail offering and has helped make the city a more vibrant place to live, work and shop.”

With an additional 30 shops opening within the one million sq ft development in the 8 months following its launch, Trinity Leeds is now home to over 100 shops, bars and restaurants.

Alastair Lockheart, from Leeds-based shopping and retail marketing agency Savvy, said, “Trinity is a fantastic asset for Leeds and beyond into the West Yorkshire area.

“Leeds is one of the great cities in the UK and I think previously it had been let down by the retail offering.”

Lord Mayor of Leeds, councillor Tom Murray, said: “It’s another success story for Leeds.”
