The Mall Blackburn formerly named Blackburn Shopping Centre is a shopping centre situated at the heart of Blackburn town centre with over 600,000 sq ft of retail space and over 100 retailers including Debenhams, BHS, Boots, Primark and Next and many more high street brands as well as a number of independent retailers.
In September 2004, The Mall Corporation purchased the shopping centre and in 2008 the £66 million redevelopment programme began. Demolition took place on Church Street and Lord Square including the old T J Hughes building.
As with many others ‘The Mall’ shopping centres The Mall Blackburn underwent a ‘monster’ development modernisation project which included TV screens, ‘Ask Me’ points and other enhanced information is already provided in brand new areas such as a Primark and WHSmiths which was built and opened on 26 July 2010. As well as the modernisation of the shopping centre, The Mall Company introduced a’spend me’ cards which are now known as Mall Gift Cards and are available to purchase at the Ask Me Point, online or click and collect.
This is the perfect gift and can be used in many stores throughout The Mall or in any others Malls throughout the country.
You decide how much you want to give and the card can pre-load with a little as £5 or as much as a £1000.
It also makes the perfect corporate gift. Why not treat your staff or pupils?
Buy online gift cards can be purchased up to the value of £650, and have them delivered straight to your door. Or use the Click & Collect service and pick them up at The Mall.
