Shopping centre and retail park
Crystal Peaks Shopping Mall has approximately 600,000 sq ft (56,000 m2) of retail space with a range of High Street stores including, Next, Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Boots, New Look, Marks and Spencer and Clarks (shoe retailer). The Centre also has an indoor market operated by Sheffield City Council, a medical centre, veterinary surgery and a range of other facilities and services.
In recent years, bee hives have been sited on the roof of the shopping centre to help combat the decline of the local bee population. Other environmental projects that the centre has taken part in include the installation of swift boxes on the building, bee-friendly planting, a nature reserve and the support of Beighton (local village) in the Britain in Bloom and Yorkshire in Bloom competitions.
Crystal Peaks also has a dedicated 'charity of the year'. In 2010 the centre raised over £8,000 for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice. The centre's adopted charity for 2011 was Macmillan Cancer Support.
Early Crystal Peaks
Crystal Peaks first opened in 1988, being developed in phases. Opening ceremonies attracted large crowds to see Roland Rat and then Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards do the honours. To much applause, Olympic ski jumper Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards performed a stunt on wires from the top of the atrium above the escalators.
Originally the central areas inside the shopping centre included a waterfall, a river, clock tower elevator and a model railway. Sheffield's first ten screen cinema, a UCI, was also part of the complex, although this closed in 2003 due to competition from newer, larger cinemas in the city.
Since opening the centre has developed a great deal; a new mall was added to the West of the centre in 1998. Sainsbury's was relocated to the lower mall in 2006 and further extensions to the North Walk and East Mall were completed in early 2007.
