Shopping City, Runcorn

Runcorn Shopping City is a 500,000 sq. ft scheme in the heart of the New Town of Runcorn with RivingtonHark acting as Asset Managers.

ABOUT SHOPPING CITY, RUNCORN:

Shopping City is  the Town centre for Runcorn , providing over  500,000 sq. ft in the heart of the New Town. RivingtonHark  were brought in as Asset Managers to repurpose and regenerate the asset following a significant decline in its income.

Shopping City attracts around 90,000 visitors a week  and is home to over 60 retailers including The Range, Wilko, Argos, Costa, Boots, Superdrug, New Look, Peacocks and Iceland. The centre is also home to a number of independents and has redevelopment of 25,000 sq. ft of prime space available.

The future of the asset is to repurpose it towards a significantly more diverse mix of uses that better serve the local community. Working with a range of stakeholders including the Local Authority; NHS; Police and National Garden Centre plans are progressing well.

COVID-19 Update:

Runcorn Shopping City is currently still open 7am-6pm during the Coviud-19 crisis providing the community with access to essential retailers and services.

We are operating a reduced retail offer as a result of the government restrictions but we still have 15 occupiers trading and, amongst others, include Boots, Wilko, Poundland and Superdrug.

We have currently reduced the number of car parks operating to two; car park 2 (adj The Range) and car park 4 (adj Wilko). The public walkways to and from the centre remain open and so too are the bus stops.

All stores have social distancing marking inside and there is onsite security supporting store marshalling in the malls. Our priority is the health and wellbeing of our customers, tenants and staff and we have targeted cleaning each day to ensure most frequently contacted areas are clean to prevent the spread of the virus.
