Houndshill Shopping Centre is an indoor shopping centre in Blackpool, Lancashire England; located in centre of town, just opposite Blackpool Tower.

Centre Information[edit]

Construction on Houndshill began in 1978. A car park was also constructed above the shopping centre, spanning over 4 floors.[1] It is the only indoor shopping centre in Blackpool.

In September 2008, a new extension was opened at a cost of over £30million; the extension featured Debenhams as the new flagship store and trebled the size of the shopping centre. The multistory car park was also expanded.[1][2][3]

In 2019, the owners of Houndshill, BCC Eiffel went into receivership, putting the future of the centre into doubt; It was bought by Blackpool Council soon after for £47million.[4]

Stores[edit]

Stores within Houndshill include: JD, Next, Yours Clothing, Jack & Jones, River Island, Costa Coffee, New Look,Build-A-Bear Workshop, Disney Store, Deichmann, Footasylum, Superdrug, Pandora and Smiggle.[2][3][5][6]
