Zara to open new Leeds flagship store in former Topshop site

The new 46,000 sq ft space is spread across three floors.

Clothing retailer Zara is to open a new flagship store in the former Topshop space inside the Trinity Leeds shopping centre.

Popular retailer Zara will be relocating from it’s current location on Briggate to a much larger site in Trinity Shopping Centre.

The new 46,000 sq ft space is spread across three floors and was previously home to Topshop until 2021.

The new store will feature Zara’s woman, man, and kids collections and will also showcase the latest technological innovations from Zara’s integrated online and physical store platform.

Nik Porter, head of brand account management at retail landlord Landsec, said: “As guests demand more from their shopping experience, brands are prioritising prime locations that drive footfall, enable customer service and have an ability to integrate in-store and online shopping experiences.

“Our retail strategy allows us to work in partnership with brands holistically to find them the best locations and ensure that their physical presence adds value to their wider multichannel offer.”

Steven Foster, centre director at Trinity Leeds, said: “We’ve been working hard on securing a top retailer for the impressive unit that Topshop previously occupied, and we’re so pleased that Zara has seized the opportunity to create an exciting new shopping experience for guests within this incredible space at Trinity Leeds.

“This big signing is proof that prime retail locations like Trinity Leeds, which sits in the heart of the city centre, continue to be in demand, and we can’t wait for people to see what Zara has planned.”

Although no official date has been announced, it is said that the new Zara shop will open at some point next year.
