The Hip Store signs up as only indie at Trinity Leeds

Leeds menswear indie The Hip Store is taking a unit in the city’s forthcoming retail development Trinity Leeds.

The Hip Store, owned by Everton Campbell, is the only independent to have signed up to the 1 million sq ft city centre development, which is due to open its doors on March 21.

The indie’s existing 700 sq ft Thornton’s Arcade store will be relocated to a new 1,100 sq ft space, which will allow Campbell to expand the number of brands he stocks, with APC and “a couple of Japanese exclusives” due to be added this summer. Current labels include Levi’s Vintage, Norse Projects, Polo Ralph Lauren and YMC.
Campbell said: “The added space means there are all sorts of new things coming in - we’ll expand the collection and bring in gadgets, male grooming, some publications and the like. But we will make sure we keep our DNA.”

The extra store space will also enable Campbell to expand online, and he plans to hire additional staff for both in store and online later this year.

The Hip Store joins the likes of big-name retailers Superdry, Hollister, Mango, Fossil, Marks & Spencer and Victoria’s Secret at Trinity Leeds.

The scheme’s leasing director John Grimes said The Hip Store’s inclusion would “help bring that all-important mix of brands to shoppers and help us create a unique experience”.

  • The developers are not stupid. Unless they have someone like Hip in there, it's just the same old faces and who needs that?
