The Trafford Centre prepares to welcome visitors back, as non-essential retail reopens on 12 April.

Visitors will be able to safely enjoy The Trafford Centre experience from 12 April, with favourite brands such as Selfridges, John Lewis, Zara and Primark at Barton Square all reopening their doors.

Lots of new brands and promotions will also be joining the centre, including Gym+Coffee, Polestar, Chopstix, Tommy Hilfiger, Pop Specs and Forever Unique.

A wide range of restaurants, such as Tampopo, Five Guys, Archie’s, Barburrito and Slim Chickens, will be offering a takeaway service from 12 April – with visitors welcome to enjoy their food and drink on one of the centre’s many outdoor areas.

The Trafford Centre’s strong safety measures will continue to including one-way systems, frequent deep cleans, hand sanitation stations, regular tannoy announcements and capacity limits.

In addition: Everyone must wear a face covering on entry and indoors, unless exempt. Trained officers will be engaging with customers at entrances if they are not wearing a face covering.

People should only visit the centre with people they live with or are in a support bubble with; the rule of six applies to indoor spaces from 17 May.
A number of car parks and entrances will remain closed to help manage capacity. Visitors can check this information on the website before their visit:

The Trafford Centre has warned that in order to adhere to the centre’s capacity limits and allow for social distancing, visitors may be asked to queue to get in, particularly at busier times such as weekends. People are advised to come prepared for the Great British weather, should they have to queue.

Staff have undertaken additional wellbeing and customer service training, and we ask visitors to be kind and considerate to our colleagues and to others. 

Centre opening hours will be 10am–9pm Monday – Saturday and 12pm–6pm on Sundays. From 17 May, the centre will remain open until 10pm. A full list of stores and opening hours can be found here:

In addition, Primark at Barton Square will be opening at 9am-10pm (excluding Sunday) for the first week of opening, and 10am – 10pm after this. Selfridges will be opening 10am – 9pm.

Plus if you want to entertain the kids Trafford Treetop Adventures is now open. For details and how to book see here.
