H&M is relaunching its store at Manchester’s Trafford Centre in a ‘world-first’ design revamp.
The 2,713sqm store will open on April 14, after being closed since November 29 to undergo the refit and will include the much-anticipated H&M Home.
Located across the upper and lower levels of Trafford Centre’s Peel Avenue, the new store will have an open façade, removing its windows, in a world-first store design for the retailer.

H&M UK & Ireland country manager Toni Galli said: “We are excited to be opening our world-leading H&M Trafford Centre store on April 14th, offering our loyal Manchester customers a brand-new look and feel unlike anything our UK customers have ever experienced.
“During our launch program, and in the coming months, we are partnering with local creators and businesses in Manchester to support the local community, proving how committed we are to Manchester and delivering the best possible shopping experience for our customers.”
Pradera Lateral director of asset management Rhys Evans added:“ H&M is a hugely popular retailer at Trafford Centre and we are certain that the store’s new concept will suit the centre perfectly. It is great to see such a prominent retailer choosing Trafford Centre as the location for a world-first store and investing in the centre with such a significant space.
“We are always keen to support retail brands in their evolution, helping them to bring fresh ideas and developments to life. This new concept H&M store is a perfect example of this and we look forward to seeing our visitors’ reactions.”
