Work is progressing on the refurbishment of Poulton’s Teanlowe Centre to provide a new Booths’ foodstore and a new look for the Market Place Mall.
The first phase of works, re-roofing of the Market Place Mall has been completed.
The current phase comprises diversion of services in Market Place by the utility companies which means the Market Place entrance will be closed until early March.
All the shops however will remain open throughout that period and the entrance will re-open in advance of the Easter trading period.
Refurbishment of the mall and an extension forward into Market Place of the former Clarks shoe shop will continue beyond Easter.
Towards the end of the refurbishment phase, preparation of new shops for Bodycare, Poulton Optical Centre and Homecare Walkabout will be carried out.
Once the new units are opened, demolition of the remainder of the Teanlowe Centre will take place, from August to early October 2014, with opening of the new Booths’ store in late Autumn 2015.
Graham Booth, Property Director for Booths said, “A new store in Poulton-le-Fylde has long been an aspiration for our company and we are delighted to now be making significant progress to deliver to our customers the facilities that they expect.”
