Record year for Trinity Walk

Record year for Trinity Walk

Wakefield’s Trinity Walk shopping centre is celebrating a record year after a wave of new lettings, campaigns and events.

Trinity Walk surpassed its footfall record in 2015 after seeing 11.22 million shopping visits throughout last year, up 4% on 2014.

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

It is consistently bucking national and regional trends, with the centre now at its highest occupancy in its five-year history with just a couple of units available.

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.”

With Trinity Walk going from strength to strength, the centre now employs around 1,500 people at any one time during peak trading times, providing a vital source of employment for Wakefield.

Trinity Walk is set to celebrate its fifth birthday in May 2016 with more plans already in the pipeline.
