IndiaCoco Set for Trinity Walk Move

IndiaCoco, Wakefield’s independent childrenswear retailer, is marking its third birthday with a move to a brand new store in the Trinity Walk Shopping Centre.

The existing Wood Street shop will close on Saturday 9 May with the larger, new Trinity Walk store opening to customers on Friday 15 May. The new store is located next to Costa and opposite Debenhams, in the heart of the main shopping mall. IndiaCoco’s Blacker Hall Farm concession store will remain open as normal.

The company’s owner Claire Harper has a whole weekend of celebrations planned with the move, the third birthday and four nominations in this year’s Wakefield Retail Awards. Harper has also been nominated for the Yorkshire Women of Achievement Award in Business, which will be announced the same weekend.

IndiaCoco specialises in the best quality, best of British clothing brands for babies, girls and boys aged 0-10, stocking well-known names including Joules, Frugi and Lilly & Sid and many more, as well as offering a personalised service, hand giftwrapping each item purchased. The store already has a loyal customer following and it is hoped that moving into the busy Trinity Walk shopping centre will attract more shoppers who are looking for something a bit different when it comes to children’s clothing.

Harper, the former marketing director of Mamas & Papas, spotted a gap in the market for a destination shop which sold original, well designed and innovative childrenswear under one roof. Since launching in 2012, IndiaCoco has won numerous business awards and attracted international and UK based costumers.

Harper commented:

“Moving into Trinity Walk is a natural next step for IndiaCoco as it evolves and attracts more customers. I can’t wait to get the new store set up and open. It’s going to be a very busy but exciting time with the launch, third birthday and all the awards!

“The new shop will appeal to a wide range of customers and will be the starting point for more IndiaCoco stores to open across the UK in the future.”

The Trinity Walk store will officially open to the public on Friday 15 May with a VIP event being held on the evening of Thursday 14 May.
