The Mall Blackburn will celebrate the completion of its £3million renovation with the official opening of its new Ainsworth Street entrance on Saturday 30th July 2016.
A fun packed event is in store with giveaways, discounts and special offers galore as well as face painting and balloon modelling with guest appearances from The Mall Monster and Boots’ Sunshine Sam.
The first 500 people through the doors of the new entrance who have, or sign up to one of The Mall’s RewardME cards, will receive a free goodie bag full of gifts from The Mall, Ed’s Easy Diner and Boots.
Baskin Robbins and Ed’s Easy Diner will also be handing out free samples of a wide range of their delicious treats.
The 20,000 sq ft transformation of Ainsworth Mall is now home to Pure Gym’s state- of-the-art fitness facility, three new retail units and the brand new entrance, which has an escalator, a lift and stair access.
Loraine Jones, General Manager at The Mall Blackburn, said: “We are delighted with the results of the renovation that has taken place and I would like to thank all our shoppers for their patience while the work was carried out.
“Pure Gym, which takes up an impressive 16,000 sq ft over two floors and is open 24 hours a day is already proving to be a huge hit with everyone, especially those who work long hours or who have children and find it difficult to find the time to exercise.
“It has been a very exciting time for Blackburn as a whole this year as several major redevelopment projects have been finalised. The future can only get brighter as more and more people come to live, work and play in our fabulous town.”
The celebration will start when The Mall opens its doors at 9.00am on Saturday. The entrance leads shoppers from Ainsworth Street to the ‘Market Way’ area in The Mall, located near Boots, B&M Bargains and Greggs.
