Stratford Centre is a shopping Mall in Stratford, London. It was built by Ravenseft Properties Limited, and opened in 1974. Refurbished and partially extended in 1998 it comprises 330,000 sq. ft. on a single level, it was sold by Land Securities to Catalyst European Property Fund LP in 2010[1] .

The centre is open access 24 hours a day although most of the shops close at night. It is situated opposite the busy Stratford Railway Station and bus station and this contributes to the high footfall through the centre, estimated at 21 million visitors every year,[1] as many people use it as a cut-through between the stations and Stratford Broadway.

The centre currently has 62 retail units, internally and externally, plus, off the East Mall is the Market Village, which contains many small independent traders, and in the West Mall is a market that trades Monday to Saturday. There is also a multi-storey car park which is open 24 hours a day and linked via lifts and stairwell in the West Mall.

Stores include: Apple Jacks Health Shop, Barclays Bank, Baron Jon, Baseo, Blue Inc, Boots, Burger King, Card Factory, Car Phone Warehouse, CeX, Chopstix Noodle Bar, Claire's Accessories, Clarks, Costa Coffee, Dewhurst Butchers, Discount Second Hand Jewellers, EE, Footlocker, Greggs, H Samuel Jewellers, Halifax Bank, Healthy Planet, Holland & Barrett, HSBC Bank, Illusion, J D Sport, KFC, Linens Direct, Lituancia, Loon Fung, McDonald's, New Look, Notting Hill, O2 Store, Osbon Pharmacy, Paul Harrison Jewellers, Peacocks, Percy Ingle, Pizza Hut, Poundland, Reed Specialist, Risky, Sainsbury's, Shoe Zone, Shuklas / Stratford News, SpecSavers, Sports Direct, Starbucks, Subway, Superdrug, The Body Shop, The Business Lab, The Fragrance Shop, The Perfume Shop, The Works, Thomas Cook, Warren James.

The centre is proposing to re-develop the site, with a 26 story residential building for students and to have additional parking and shops in the shopping centre.[2]
