Eskmuir Securities, owners of the Grosvenor Centre Macclesfield, is undertaking a major revamp of the shopping centre, representing an £11m investment in the town centre.

As a result of the redevelopment of the centre; Eskmuir Securities has secured a letting to a well-known international retailer which will be taking one of the new large and modern units being created as part of the works.

The new retailer will offer clothing and homewares from a huge range of brands and will join the strong line up of brand names already trading at the Grosvenor Centre; including Clarks, Boots, Superdrug and Fat Face.

The development works which are due to commence in September involve an extension to the main shopping centre to create three, brand new, larger format units and a new high street store better suited to the needs of modern retailers.

As well as the brand new extension; the centre’s main mall areas are also undergoing refurbishment to create a more contemporary shopping environment with improved lighting and walkways. The work will complete at the end of 2017.

Paul Hodgson, Managing Director, Eskmuir commented: “These development works represent a major investment into Macclesfield town centre, which complements the town’s shopping offer and bolsters the investment already taking place in the town through the Council.

“We are confident by introducing new retailers to Macclesfield, the town will soon attract other major high street brands; increasing the choice on offer for shoppers, helping retain spend in the town and attracting visitors from further afield.”

David Rutley MP for Macclesfield said: “It’s great to see this significant investment in the town centre by Eskmuir Securities in the Grosvenor Centre. This investment is further good news for the regeneration to the town centre and follows the recent announcement of a new cinema and a leisure led scheme. Eskmuir’s decision is another vote of confidence in Macclesfield.”

Cheshire East Council Leader Rachel Bailey said: “This redevelopment represents a significant investment into the heart of Macclesfield and is a positive step towards the wider regeneration of the town centre.

 “This extension to the Grosvenor Centre benefits the town by injecting investment into the local economy, attracting household name retailers to Macclesfield and creating new jobs for local people.

“This project complements those being driven forward by the Council to enhance the wider town centre offer including the planned cinema proposal and public realm enhancements.”
