2nd February 2024 | Jack Oliver

Starbucks is set to open a new branch at Altrincham’s new retail, leisure, and workspace destination, Stamford Quarter.

The international coffee shop brand has agreed to take a 1,708 sq ft unit on the ground floor of the Foundation building. It will sit alongside three other brands including independent bowling alley and entertainment venue Lane7.

The announcement follows a successful 2023 for Stamford Quarter, with visitor numbers rising by 5% year-on-year. The Foundation building which will host the Starbucks store is set to be completed by this summer.

James Tootle, head of retail and leisure at property group Bruntwood, said: “We’re delighted that Starbucks has chosen Foundation for its new home on the high street. A brand that is as globally popular as Starbucks is a fantastic bedrock for the Foundation community – one which will be made up of an exciting mix of independent and national brands. It will be a vibrant workspace community which integrates and supports the hospitality offering with amenities that benefit the immediate area and the wider town. As work gathers pace on Foundation and Stamford Square, we’re looking forward to making more announcements soon.”

Councillor Tom Ross, leader of Trafford Council, added: “We are totally committed to transforming our town centres and our work with Bruntwood on creating Foundation is a superb example of this. We are attracting huge names as well as independent brands to our town centres and that is fabulous news going forward.”
