High end accessories brand Coach opens at intu Trafford Centre

Iconic Greater Manchester retail and leisure destination intu Trafford Centre has welcomed high-end accessories brand Coach, with the luxury retailer’s first standalone store in the north west.

Designed by Coach’s in-house team, the new 657 sq ft store features a new modern luxury interior concept which includes leather furniture and bespoke fittings. The boutiqueoffers a full range of both men’s and women’s leather goods.

Coach is the latest high-profile brand to choose intu Trafford Centre which already offers the widest choice of leisure and retailing in the north west. Luxury children’s designer clothing retailer Kids Cavern recently opened at the centre, stocking over 120 of the world’s biggest designer brands including Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, and Givenchy. Selfridges also completed a refurbishment of its accessories hall this year with new brands and services including Aspinal of London, The Restory, FROG and Astrid and Miyu. 

 Work is currently underway on the £75 million transformation of intu Trafford Centre’s Barton Square which will add another 110,000 sq ft of space to the popular retail and leisure destination.

Coach is the perfect addition to intu Trafford Centre’s unrivalled line up of retail and leisure. Nowhere else in the UK outside of London can draw on such a large and affluent population so we know Coach will thrive here.
