Harpur Centre Continues Radical Development

Harpur Centre Continues Radical Development

The Harpur Centre’s redevelopment is coming on leaps and bounds!

We’re creating a space that is not just a Shopping Centre, but a lifestyle and community hub that people will really want to visit. Now that the spiral has been demolished, works are progressing and we’re excited to reveal our new atrium, lift and stairway in time for Santa visiting his Grotto!

The contractors have been busily working on site to ensure that the Harpur Centre’s new makeover is complete for the Christmas period – the perfect Christmas gift for Bedford’s fashionistas! With the low ceilings having been removed and miles of old electrical cabling and pipework being replaced, Harpur Centre’s visitors will be shopping for Christmas gifts in style.

Customers will have already seen new ceilings being installed as well as new floor finishes and decorative areas being worked upon across the ground floor but, what has been happening behind the hoarding? The demolition of the old spiral ramp has now been completed and is ready to be replaced with a brand spanking new glass lift and staircase. New customer toilets and a downstairs seating area will be unveiled when the basement reopens to enhance our visitor experience. The dreamlike visions we shared with our shoppers are soon to become their reality.

Centre Manager Samantha Laycock said: “Our investment programme is a fundamental part of our vision for the future. We want to give our visitors the best shopping experience possible and the Harpur Centre team can’t wait to unveil the redevelopment to our customers! So many people already love Bedford because of its great shops and proud history, plus we’re excited about the town’s fantastic future too!
