Following the success of Sephora’s first UK store at Westfield Shepherds Bush and the opening of Sephora East in November at Westfield Stratford, the brand has announced the location of its third brick and mortar store.
In summer 2024, Sephora will open its doors at the renowned Trafford Centre in Manchester.
The announcement follows an influx of requests and enthusiasm from beauty fans calling for the brand to expand its presence outside London.
Manchester emerged as the top city requested by fans, with the store set to open with the tagline ‘Manchester, you called it’.
Sarah Boyd, Managing Director at Sephora UK, says: “We are extremely excited to bring Sephora to Manchester, one of the most vibrant cities for beauty in the UK. Expanding our presence beyond London is something that consumers have been screaming out for and we are listening hard to them when deciding where to go next! The Trafford Centre, known for its iconic atmosphere and diverse retail offering, is the perfect location for our third store.”
The new Sephora location boasts an expansive 500 square meters of sales floor space, with exclusive brands including Glossier, Makeup by Mario, GXVE by Gwen Stefani and Haus Labs by Lady Gaga set to be available alongside the brand’s Sephora Collection.
The grand opening of Sephora Manchester will recognise the pivotal role of diverse cities such as Manchester in shaping the beauty industry landscape in the UK and will offer an unparalleled shopping experience for beauty fans in the north.
