The opening date has been announced for a beauty brand which is set to open its doors in the Trafford Centre.

Sephora will officially be opening on May 16 and fans of the store are already sharing their excitement on social media.

It was first revealed last year on December 14 that the US makeup giant was to open its first mega store in the north inside The Trafford Centre, offering customers a wide range of skincare and makeup brands.

The store is set to open next door to All Saints on the Lower Regent Crescent and comes just months after another popular American brand Bath and Body Works also opened in the centre.

Taking to Instagram to share the announcement, Sephora UK and The Trafford Centre said: “Mark your calendars, put it in your diaries and tell your best friend (and your employer — for the time off you’ll need to join us)... Sephora Trafford Centre opens on the 16th May. Hands up if you’ll be there for our launch.”

Fans of the beauty brand are already sharing their excitement.

One person said: “Trafford Centre trips are about to be longer.”

Another said: “I am so excited for Sephora to open, I have been to a couple of stores when I travelled in America and Spain and was waiting for the day it would come to Manchester.”
