New-look YEP is top of the shops for Leeds

Have your say

Leeds is definitely the top of the shops – and your new-style Yorkshire Evening Post will help you make the most of the city’s booming retail scene.

The YEP’s forthcoming revamp will see a wealth of fresh, exciting content added to our ever-popular existing roster of stories and features.

Among the additions will be a number of initiatives inspired by Leeds’s burgeoning reputation as one of the premier places to shop in the UK.

We will be highlighting the best buys to be had in the city’s major malls, including the flagship Trinity Leeds centre.

There will also be advice for people wanting to look after the pennies and the pounds, with rundowns of the most attractive discounts on offer in Leeds.

YEP managing editor Nicola Furbisher said: “Leeds is in the midst of a retail boom with shoppers flocking to the city in their droves.

“We will be making sure your new look YEP will be your one-stop shop for some of the best shopping deals.”

The revamped YEP will hit the streets for the first time next Monday, January 19.

It will be lighter, brighter and easier-on-the-eye, cementing its position at the heart of life in one of the UK’s most vibrant cities.

As part of the relaunch, we are putting together a team of volunteer correspondents who will compile weekly columns filled with grassroots news about the places where they live.

We’re particularly keen to recruit residents in Headingley, Beeston, Armley, Pudsey, Hunslet, Belle Isle and Cross Gates.

In a separate move, we are also searching for people interested in signing up as members of our reader panel.

The panel will be asked for their thoughts on topics in the headlines.
