Motherwell Shopping Centre is an outdoor shopping centre located in the centre of Motherwell, North Lanarkshire, Scotland. It is owned jointly by Chester Properties[1] and Columbus Capital,[2] who purchased the site from previous owners CALA Properties [4] on May 2010.[6] The centre is known locally as Motherwell Town Centre.

History and Formation[edit]

Formerly the section of Brandon Street connecting to Motherwell Point in the post-war era, this section would later separate and be transformed into a pedestrianised street, leading to the creation of Brandon Parade. The new end of Brandon Street would later connect to a by-pass road known as Menteith Road.[7] Plan The centre was later renamed Brandon Shopping Centre after CALA Properties purchased the centre. Due to the transition, many famous nationwide retailers, such as Primark, now have a store in the centre, making it one of the most attractive and well-known shopping centres in North Lanarkshire. On October 2013, the centre was given a radical upgrade, and was renamed Motherwell Shopping Centre upon completion.[8]

Location and transport links[edit]

The shopping centre is located close to Motherwell railway station,[9] with access to services on routes including the West Coast Main Line, East Coast Main Line, Cross Country and Argyle Line providing local and longer-distance services, from Glasgow, Edinburgh, stretching out to as far as London and Penzance. It also has numerous bus stops located at Merry Street, Muir Street and West Hamilton Street,[9] as well as a taxi rank at the North of the centre next to the public toilets.[7]
