Ridings Shopping Centre Set For Multi-Million Pound Investment

The Ridings Shopping Centre has announced plans for a multi-million pound investment following its sale to NewRiver Retail, the retail property investor.

The plans include significant works and cosmetic changes to the centre covering all three levels of the mall.

Eileen Holroyd, Centre Manager at The Ridings Shopping Centre comments: “It is with a great deal of pleasure that we can announce plans for a multi-million pound investment into The Ridings Shopping Centre. The injection of funds by our new owners NewRiver Retail will support a refreshed and improved retail mix alongside a stronger food and beverage offering.

“Discussions and planning are currently underway, but we will be sharing more details in the coming weeks. In the meantime, The Ridings alongside its new owners NewRiver, will continue to work closely with key stakeholders including the local authority and Trinity Walk. We also look forward to restoring pride in The Ridings and Wakefield city centre as a whole.”

Situated over three levels, The Ridings Shopping Centre houses a mixture of stores including BHS, Primark and Marks & Spencer alongside quality independents such as Created in Yorkshire, Feather’s Confectionery and Artworld.
