Trends come and go and here at Middleton Shopping Centre we always want to ensure that our visitor’s needs are met and our retailers are experts at keeping up to date with current trends, appealing to the latest tastes, interests and needs of their customers.
Centre Manager, Marie Gribben, talks about some key trends for 2022 that we’re watching out for…
The past two years have been difficult for the high street. However, it is beginning to pick up again, making the customer experience more important than ever before. Excellent customer service and that ability for customers to see it, feel it, try it on and take it home is just one of the things that differentiate us.
At Middleton, we aim to create unique and memorable experiences in-store; focusing on customer interests, really meeting their needs and wants, and hosting events to showcase products all help.
We all love something new and at Middleton we have been delighted to introduce an interactive games area and a free library ‘Midful Nest’ with other engaging activity coming soon. Successful customer experience also means keeping our visitors up to date with new offers, menus, events and competitions. We regularly update our news section and social media to ensure you are all aware of what’s happening in the Centre.
Trends for this year include…
Through our social media channels, we talk to our visitors and share all the latest news, offers and competitions to our fabulous Middleton community.
Last year, we worked with Alkrington Primary School, North Manchester Hospital, Cold Hands, Warm Heart, The Lighthouse Project and The Rotary Club as well as many other charities to support them with their events. This remains a key objective for us again this year.
We will continue to play our part to showcase the whole of Middleton as the fantastic destination it is. Working together and supporting each other for the greater good will be another big trend for 2022 and it’s a continuation of many years of collaboration. This spirit of collaboration across retailers, restaurants, other commercial organisations, leisure operators, and the cultural and public sectors, is fantastic and we hope it continues throughout this year and beyond.Back >
