The better of the two shopping centres in Northampton town centre. But that’s not saying much.The Grosvenor Centre is a little bit grotty and in need of a referb. Especially if you enter from the high street and fight your way through all the smokers and their trash to the greasy glass doors.
The shops are your normal choice of faceless chains selling the same old stuff you can get from any town center.
I would love to one day walk into a shopping center in Northampton and find a store I have never seen anywhere else.
Our town centers lack diversity, originality, where has the independent trader gone?
Just as newly built housing estates have to cater for affordable housing, newly built shopping centers should be made to leave room for the independents. Lets get some choice and originality back on the streets.
