Lindt chooses Trinity Leeds for portfolio growth

Swiss luxury chocolatier Lindt has chosen Trinity Leeds to open a landmark store that supports the brand’s growing portfolio objectives. This will be Lindt’s second UK Lindt Boutique. Land Securities, the UK’s largest commercial property company, has introduced over 65 new brands to the city centre since Trinity Leeds opened in 2013. Lindt is due to open by the end of August with hoardings going up Friday 24 June.

Lindt & Sprüngli (UK) Ltd – trading as Lindt – will open a new 1,736 sq. ft. unit directly next to the high footfall Boar Lane entrance behind Holy Trinity Church. The unit is optimally situated next to popular jewellers Pandora and Swarovski and opposite Apple. The store will carry the entire range of Lindt Chocolates including Lindor, Excellence, Creation, Hello and the Lindt Swiss Luxury Selection.

Lindt’s Global Retail strategy firmly places its boutiques in major global city centres, and as Lindt’s second Boutique store in the UK and first to Leeds, Trinity Leeds is positioned amongst iconic global retail destinations such as 5th Avenue in New York City and Karlsplatz in Munich.

Rob Jewell, Portfolio Director at Land Securities said, “Signing Lindt’s second ever UK boutique brings added colour to our tenant mix at Trinity Leeds. The brand joins over 110 new and world-class retailers we’ve brought to the city centre, as well as nurturing retail and leisure innovation wherever we find it. Supporting Lindt’s early portfolio strategies at Trinity Leeds reinforces our commitment to providing our customers with the most sought-after and progressive brand experiences.”

Faythe King, Retail Director at Lindt & Sprüngli (UK) Ltd, commented, “” The Lindt Global Retail Strategy is focusing on expansion into global retail locations and Trinity Leeds is an ideal choice for our second UK boutique. Trinity Leeds’ location at the heart of Leeds and reputation as a next generation shopping centre will further advance our UK presence and recognition as a premium chocolatier.”
