24th June 2024 | Jack Oliver

MINISO is set to open its largest store in the north of England at the Trafford Centre in Manchester.

Spanning 2,700 sq ft, the lifestyle retailer’s new store will be situated on the scheme’s ground floor, near to Boots and John Lewis.

The store will be MINISO’s 28th in the UK, and its second in Manchester following an opening at Manchester Arndale in 2023.

The new location joins other stores in the North for the brand including at Trinity Leeds, Metrocentre in Gateshead, Victoria Centre in Nottingham, and Derby’s Derbion.

Saad Usman, chief operating officer at MINISO UK, said: “We are incredibly excited to grow our presence in the North West by opening Minis’s largest store in the North of England at the Trafford Centre.

“This is MINISO’s second store in Manchester after the great success of our Arndale location, and we can’t wait to expand even more in the North this year. Trafford Centre has always been a premier shopping hub in the city, and we are thrilled to bring our unique blend of affordable, high-quality products to this iconic shopping destination.”

Simon Layton, centre director at Trafford Centre, added: “MINISO promises to bring a unique and joyful in-store experience to our visitors, and will be a fantastic addition to our dynamic brand line-up at the Trafford Centre.”
