A glowing year for Bloomfield Shopping Centre

Posted by Ellandi on 21st Jan 2018

We're seeking to build on a bumper 2017 at Bloomfield Shopping Centre which saw 14 permanent lettings complete with the likes of JD Sports, Superdrug, The Works, Holland & Barrett and The Perfume Shop, by commencing works to build a new drive-through pod pre-let to Starbucks in Q1 2018. 

The last 9 months have seen 14 deals completed, 5 to new retailers including Superdrug, The Works and JD Sports. A further 3 retailers have relocated within the scheme, including Holland & Barrett who have doubled their original size.

The raft of lettings and pre-lettings is a sign of retailer confidence in the scheme which is set to continue following further investment and works planned.

Richard Hutchinson explains:

“We’ve recently completed nearly £200,000 worth of works which included the addition of a porch to the main entrance beside Next and JD Sports which had previously caused a wind tunnel effect. Alongside this, we have removed some unattractive pod units from the central mall providing some much-needed events space. Both projects were completed in time for Christmas allowing for an improved shopping environment during the festive season.”

In addition to building a Starbucks drive-through, a further £400,000 of works are planned which will reconfigure and resurface the car park in order to improve the flow and reduce congestion. Further significant investment is planned over the next couple of years to build on additional identified retailer demand and improved trading at the centre.

Richard added: “2017 was a great year for the scheme, with the additional investment being deployed over the next couple of years, we have no doubt that the retailers will be queuing up for a space at Bloomfield Shopping Centre”.
