JD Sports has chosen Manchester’s Trafford Centre for the opening of its biggest store to date in its global portfolio.

The 42,412 square foot flagship will be a relocation within the centre for JD and will be housed on the lower level of a former TopShop unit.

The news follows the announcement that Next has signed a new 10-year lease with Trafford Centre to significantly upsize its presence at the scheme by bringing its fashion, beauty and home offering together in a single 65,000 square foot store..
