£2m refit for Braehead Shopping Centre

01 Nov 2011

Braehead shopping centre is to benefit from a £2 million refit in the new year. Capital Shopping Centres has revealed that more retailers are interested in opening premises following the arrival of technology giant Apple and clothing chain Hollister.

The refit involves moving one of the escalators at its Braehead development, near Glasgow, and opening up the newly-created restaurant area to make it more visible.

Mike Butterworth, who joined the company in January following the takeover of the Trafford shopping centre in Manchester, said there were also plans to increase the height of the shop fronts on the first floor to create a bigger impact.

Braehead was one of four centres for which Butterworth had responsibility after joining CSC. He was yesterday named as the company's new chief operating officer, expanding his remit across all 25 of the firm's centres in the UK.

Butterworth said: "Bringing Apple and Hollister to Braehead has meant we are already in talks with other retailers."
