After a successful joint venture bid with Rockspring, we acquired 4 Shopping Centres for £136m from The Mall in August 2010.

After substantial improvement; renaming each centre as they had been known locally, clever but necessary redevelopment and smart economical re-branding that works across all four, our shopping centres have been brought back to pride of place in the community heart of our four towns. This along with strong brand communication through our ‘Into Shopping’ umbrella theme in advertising and promotion, and a new more focused hands‐on management style has transformed the economic outlook of each centre.

Following completion of the business plan objectives, the 4 schemes were sold in December 2014.
