Habitat moves its Manchester flagship store to Barton Square

Habitat, advised by Harper Dennis Hobbs, has moved its Manchester flagship store to Barton Square, the new home interiors shopping concept at The Trafford Centre, from St Ann's Street in the city centre.

The international furnishings retailer has taken a 20,000 sq ft (1,858 sq m) outlet at the scheme on a new 10 year lease.

Barton Square, which opens on March 20th, is the new homewares area of The Trafford Centre, linked to the original scheme by a glazed bridge. Other occupiers include Marks & Spencer Home, Next Home, British HOME Stores and Dwell.

David Harper of Harper Dennis Hobbs comments: "Barton Square is the ideal location for Habitat's flagship store and is ideally suited to the needs of Habitat.

"The former store on St Ann's Street can no longer provide the retail environment or facilities that many top retailers require, while the new development gives Habitat an excellent trading space and convenient location.

"The concept of Barton Square will benefit all of the retailers involved and will ensure that it becomes the destination for homewares and furnishings in the North West."
