Bransholme’s North Point Shopping Centre is celebrating a double milestone in its history as a refurbished and rebranded market hall is unveiled coinciding with transformed pub the Sutton Arms welcoming punters back after four years.
The market hall has undergone a substantial refurbishment programme that has delivered new flooring throughout, open space at the back of the market and new stall electrics including electric roller shutters. Fresh signage has also been installed, including a striking LED market entrance sign and new individual market stall signage.
The unveiling of the market hall follows a critical year for the shopping centre, which proved to be a valuable community resource during the pandemic, providing vital retail services to local residents. A number of essential stores remained open and were depended on by the community more than ever before.
During this time, pub company Admiral Taverns also transformed the nearby former Foredyke pub. The Sutton Arms is now open to the public and offers a fresh look and feel.
A spokesman for North Point Shopping Centre said: “The last year has been incredibly tough for everyone in the community so we’re extremely proud to have played such an essential role in supporting people through this difficult time.
“As lockdown restrictions have eased and more of our shops have opened back up, it’s been wonderful to see a sense of normality return to the centre. With the refurbished and rebranded market and pub now unveiled, North Point’s place as a popular community resource is only going to be further cemented.”
North Point Shopping Centre, which celebrates 48 years at the heart of Bransholme this November, offers opportunities to shop at more than 60 outlets with a range of community events and activities for local people.
