Two major brands are set to open at Trafford Retail Park in early 2020 after Peel Retail Parks, part of Peel Land & Property (Peel L&P), announced it has received the green light to construct its phase two development from Trafford Council.

Aldi has signed for a 18,568 sq ft discount food store and Starbucks has agreed a lease on a 1,800 sq ft drive-thru unit with parking at the Barton Road scheme. Joining an already strong line up of retailers including Dunelm, Food Warehouse, Nando’s and B&M, the new brands are expected to further boost the park’s 4 million annual footfall figure.

Stuart Parks at Aldi UK said: “This site is an ideal location for a new Aldi store as it’s a shopping area that our customers already visit. We look forward to opening the doors of this store next year and helping the community shop and save closer to home.”

Roger Wheeldon, Development Director at Peel Land and Property said: “Phase two of Trafford Retail Park will be a welcome addition of retail floor space to what is already a top performing park. The new Tenants will provide additional choice for our existing customers and we’re confident the new stores will encourage a new clientele to the park, subsequently increasing footfall.

“We expect to start on site in summer 2019 and hope to see both Aldi and Starbucks trading early 2020.”

Located within TraffordCity, one of the UK’s leading retail and leisure destinations and close to intu Trafford Centre, Trafford Retail Park has over 740 free parking spaces, with an additional 143 spaces being built to service the new development.
