The Mander centre in Wolverhampton has a new anchor after Debenhams opened a new 93,000-sq ft department store at the 600,000-sq ft shopping centre. The store has been created as part of landlord Benson Elliot’s £35m redevelopment of the centre.
The Mander centre attracts up to 17 million visitors annually and the current reconfiguration has created 10 new units in the best fashion and leisure pitch. Recent additions to the centre include Footasylum, The Entertainer, JD Sports and a 30,000-sq ft H&M which includes the first homeware section in the Midlands.
Cushman & Wakefield manages the centre, and is joint letting agent with Jackson Criss. Adam Lazenbury, partner in Cushman & Wakefield’s national retail team, said: “This is an exciting stage in the redevelopment of the Mander centre. As we reach the final stages of the redevelopment programme, shoppers will start to see a transformation in their shopping environment.”
