GAP is making a long-awaited return to Manchester, and it’s opening up inside Next in the Trafford Centre this weekend.

In what is part of the popular fashion brand’s UK expansion, and all set to open to the public just in time for the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping over the festive period, the Gap-branded store will open its doors on the first floor of NEXT in the Trafford Centre this Saturday 26 November, and will cover over 2,200 square feet of retail space.

The all-new Trafford Centre store will have a modern and minimal design, with GAP saying it “embodies the brand’s reinvented approach to retail in the UK”.

Those making their way to the shopping centre over the next couple of weeks will get the chance to browse and shop from curated collections of everyday essentials – including denim, fleece, khakis, shirting, and of course, the iconic GAP logo-emblazoned products.

Not only that, but also offers a free next-day Click & Collect service, and a free returns option, to any GAP or NEXT store, including from the next Trafford Centre store, giving even more ways to shop.


Customers can shop online, and then collect their orders in the new store.
