Bondholder intu Derby has been named the East Midlands' number one shopping centre, according to research conducted by Trevor Wood Associates.
The ‘Going Shopping 2017 – The Definitive Guide to Shopping Centres’ sees the Derby shopping centre ranked highest in the region, and 16th overall in the country.
Adam Tamsett, General Manager intu Derby, said: "We are delighted to hear that intu Derby has been ranked the best shopping centre in the region. The last 12 months have been an exciting time for the centre with the opening of a number of new stores including Cath Kidston, New Look Men, Toys R Us and BB’s Bakers and Baristas as well as new restaurants including MEXIco and Carluccios. As well as this, work is well underway on a fantastic leisure development which will see Hollywood Bowl and Paradise Golf open at intu Derby in Spring 2017.
"Our aim is to continue to provide the people of the East Midlands with an outstanding place to shop and spend time with their families for many years to come.”
The tables are compiled by looking at shopping centres currently trading and ranking them by overall attractiveness to shoppers, retailers and investors. This was achieved by confirming detailed information for each scheme thought to be larger than 50,000 sq ft in the United Kingdom. The information is then converted into points for selected features shown to be important to those groups, including tenants, lettable area, type of scheme, weekly footfall and facilities available.
