Wakefield Welcomes Pandora

Major international jewellery brand, PANDORA, is taking a 1,275 sq ft unit at Trinity Walk Shopping Centre in the heart of Wakefield city centre.

The PANDORA store will be operated by locally-based jewellers, Hugh Rice, under the PANDORA name. PANDORA will be located on the main shopping mall next to Costa and near Debenhams.

PANDORA designs and manufactures hand-finished, contemporary jewellery made from high-quality materials at affordable prices. The global brand is sold in more than 90 countries around the world and the dedicated store at Trinity Walk will be another major attraction for shoppers to the centre, which already welcomes around 11million people per annum.

PANDORA franchisee, Paul Rice, MD of Hugh Rice, commented:

“Moving into Trinity Walk is a natural next step for PANDORA as we attract new customers as well as being more accessible to existing loyal customers of the brand.”

The new store is expected to open towards the end of November. Six full-time and five part-time staff will be employed at the Trinity Walk store.

Trinity Walk’s retailer line up includes the likes of Next, H&M, Arcadia brands Topshop Topman, Dorothy Perkins as well as ASDA Living and the largest Sainsbury’s in the area. Restaurants and cafes include Pizza Express, Handmade Burger Co., Caffe Nero and Burger King.

Letting agents for the retail and leisure units at Trinity Walk are Angermann Goddard & Loyd and Savills.
