‘Ma­jor brand’ sign-up claim

Macclesfield Express - - TOWN CENTRE REGENERATION -

GROSVENOR Cen­tre bosses stated a ‘ma­jor fash­ion brand’ has signed for half of the space in the new ex­ten­sion - but did not re­veal who it is.

Bosses from Eskmuir which runs the shop­ping cen­tre is­sued a state­ment to be read at the MiM meet­ing about the ex­pan­sion into the for­mer Cheshire Build­ing So­ci­ety which has been de­mol­ished apart from its fa­cade.

John Sul­li­van, from Eskmuir, said: “The ex­ten­sion is due for com­ple­tion in spring.

“A ma­jor na­tional fash­ion re­tailer has com­mit­ted to tak­ing a lease of half of the new space and dis­cus­sions are be­ing ad­vanced with other re­tail­ers on the re­main­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion.

“The unit fac­ing Cas­tle Street is be­ing tar­geted for restau­rant use.

“All the de­mo­li­tion and ground works are now largely com­plete and so res­i­dents and lo­cal busi­nesses will now start to see the ex­ten­sion be­gin to take shape.

“The re­tained Post Of­fice frontages onto Cas­tle Street and Churchill Way are now be­hind a scaf­fold so that the stonework, iron­work and win­dows can be re­paired and dec­o­rated.”
