National retailer The Works is the latest addition at Trinity Walk shopping centre in Wakefield.

The store, which opened its doors this week, means Trinity Walk is now more fully-let than ever before with only a couple of empty units remaining.

The opening has led to seven new jobs being created at the all-round gifts, toys, books, arts and crafts store, which has opened in a 2,387sq ft unit on Teall Way.

The Works will now be next to GAME and Trespass, and opposite Clarks and Deichmann. The company has over 300 stores in the UK.

Kevin Keaney, chief executive officer at The Works said: “Moving into Trinity Walk before Christmas is fantastic as we get to experience the busy atmosphere of being in a shopping centre like Trinity Walk over the Christmas season. We’ll have a wider product mix in the new store, bringing existing customers as well as attracting new ones.”

Cormac Hamilton, centre manager at Trinity Walk, added: “We’re thrilled to have another national retailer like The Works move into the shopping centre. We are confident that adding The Works to the already great mix of retailers will improve our offer to our customers. It’s also yet another boost for jobs in the city.”
