The Grosvenor Centre is located on the site of a previous medieval monastery in the centre of Northampton. The centre is linked to both the Market Square and Abington Street. It has its own multi-storey car park and was formerly connected to the Greyfriars bus station. The North Gate bus station is just west of the shopping centre.
Below are the stores at the centre as of September 2016:
- Body Shop
- Browne's Old Sweet Shop
- Card Factory
- Charlie Browns
- The Fragrance Shop
- Millie's Cookies
- Muffin Break
- New Look
- Office (coming in 2016)
- The Perfume Shop
- W H Smith
- Shake Bar
- Two Seasons
- Vision Express
With proposed closure of the adjacent Greyfriars bus station, the centre was due to expand over the reclaimed site. However, this proposal was terminated on the 14 July 2014, and the bus station site given back to Northampton Borough Council. L&G then announced a £3 million refurbishment of the centre, due for completion in September 2014, involving new entrance canopies, refurbished toilets, updated ceilings, lighting, flooring, lifts and signage.
