A Starbucks will open next month and an Aldi supermarket will follow later this year as part of the 80,000 sq ft development at the shopping complex across the M60 from the Trafford Centre, its owner Peel L&P Retail Parks said. 

The Aldi and Starbucks form part one of the second phase of the retail park with plans for further retail development on site to follow.

The retail park, next to the Barton Road Bridge, already houses stores including a 35,000 sq ft Dunelm, a Food Warehouse, Nando’s and B&M, and attracts around 4.8m visitors a year.  

Developer Peel L&P won approval for the second phase of the park, featuring 80,000 sq ft of additional retail, last March. Havercroft Construction was the main contractor. 

Peel L&P, represented by Prime Retail, has had a pre-agreement in place to sell the completed scheme to Azko Nobel pension scheme for an undisclosed sum.  

Roger Wheeldon, director of development of Peel L&P’s Retail Parks, said: “Phase two of Trafford Retail Park has completed during uncertain and testing times. 

“The new phase of the park adds additional parking, including parent and child and disabled spaces, electric vehicle charging points including fast-charging, and CCTV for security.” 

Savills and Avison Young are the joint lettings agents for Trafford Retail Park.
