B&Q Warehouse opens its largest store in Europe

Kingfisher has opened its biggest store in Europe - a B&Q Warehouse at Trafford Park in Manchester.

The 168,450 sq ft (15,650 sq m) store is almost 20,000 sq ft (1,860 sq m) bigger than a traditional B&Q Warehouse and three times the size of the pitch at nearby Old Trafford.

Trafford Park is one of three outlets it is opening in the Northwest over the next two months in a£30 million plan. Shops are also expected to open at Wigan and Cheetham Hill.

Last October, the retailer opened its biggest store in the world, a 250,000 sq ft (23,225 sq m) outlet in Beijing, China.
