Intu Trafford Centre Administration

5 replies 287 views
So it has just been announced that the Trafford Centre has gone into administration. Usually when this happens, gift cards are no longer redeemable. I was given a couple of gift cards around January for the Trafford Centre, but given the lockdown, I have been unable to use them even if I wanted to. Where would I stand in this situation?

    Just checked on Twitter, no posts in the last week. Not even one announcing the administration. Will keep an eye out. But previously gift cards are null and void 😔

    Quick update - I recently went to the Trafford Centre and was able to spend my gift cards no problem.

    Nothing to do with Intu.... But I wish there was a law against selling gift cards..... So many people have been left with crappy bits of worthless card when a company folds, it leaves 2 people out of pocket... The person that bought it, and the person that receives the card. 
    I'd rather someone gimme the money and I can spend it where I like and how I like.
    Rant over.
