The Grosvenor Centre, Northampton. Market Square entrance.

The Grosvenor Centre is a shopping centre in the town centre of Northampton, England. Work started in 1972 and the building opened in 1976.[1]

It is located adjacent to Market Square, and is owned by Legal & General. Consisting of two levels, a £3 million refurbishment is currently underway.[citation needed]

Location[edit]

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.[2]

Stores[edit]

Below are the stores at the centre as of September 2016:

Future[edit]

House of Fraser, unable to commit to a long-term lease, closed in March 2014, and was replaced by Next and Primark.[3]

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.[4] 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.
