Trafford Centre’s latest offering, Barton Square, opened last week. The £70 million extension, linked to the main centre by a footbridge, specialises in homewares shopping.

The first phase opened with four retailers – Habitat, Next Home, Dwell and British Home Stores. Others such as Marks & Spencer Home, Lombok, Laura Ashley and Porcelanosa will open before May. Upmarket retailer Heal’s is also thought to be eyeing the scheme.

Barton Square continues Trafford Centre’s bling design with Roman pillars and a fountain of mermaids and naked gold girls.

Letting agents are Churston Heard and Cushman & Wakefield.
