Mill Gate, Bury

The vision is to maintain a strong level of footfall, occupancy and keep the centre relevant to its customer base.


Mill Gate is a 400,000 sq ft community led shopping centre. At purchase the scheme was 65% let; had lacked investment for a long time  and had suffered major tenant losses with the likes of BHS and M&S.

Through targeted investment in the asset and wider stakeholder engagement, RivingtonHark’s intensive asset management has increased occupancy to 98%.  Additional assets have been bought in and RivingtonHark have introduced new anchors to the scheme creating space for TJ Hughes and B&M. We actively encourage enterprise within the local community through a targeted leasing strategy and the quality of regional and independent traders has helped the scheme improve over the last few years.

Close cooperation continues with the Local Authority over the interaction of the adjacent award winning Market, and wider improvements to the town centres where  Mill Gate sits at the heart.


The Mill Gate shopping centre remains open, allowing key retailers to offer essential services to their local community. There are 14 retailers including Boots, Home Bargains and Heron Frozen Foods, currently trading between the following opening hours: Monday- Saturday 0900-1730 and Sunday 1100-1700.

The centre  implements social distancing measures to keep customers and staff safe whilst they shop and work.  In addition, all our cleaning and security staff have been provided with appropriate PPE and undertake frequent cleaning of all touch points following a full chemical clean of the centre.

The famous Bury Market continues to trade on market days in a reduced format, operating social distancing measures and providing essential food items to the local population.

Whilst the centre’s car park is currently closed Mill Gate is still well serviced by public transport with excellent tram and bus links adjacent to the centre. Bury Council have also introduced free parking across all their adjacent car parks which serve Mill Gate as well as the town centre.
