Work is set to start on a major refurbishment of The Mall Walthamstow, which will undergo an extensive £3 million interior revamp, ahead of longer-term enlargement plans for the shopping centre.


The refurbishment of The Mall aims to create a more vibrant and visually exciting shopping experience. This will include the installation of new shop fronts, modern flooring and a new staircase, which will be placed in the Central Square. The current dated brickwork will also be replaced, creating a visually inspiring shopping centre.


Additionally, the refurbishment will include a bespoke ceiling feature that will run through the shopping centre. The ‘ribbon’ will temper sunlight flooding into the building, and provide backdrop onto which rays will be projected at night.


Work will begin in June of this year and is set to be completed in March 2015. Business will continue as normal, with most of the work taking place during closing hours. Work will stop temporarily over Christmas and trading hours will remain unaffected.


The Mall Walthamstow will also be calling on local business talent and has appointed the iconic Walthamstow-based neon lighting designer, Chris Bracey to help.

The founder of God’s Own Junkyard will create unique signs for The Mall as part of the vision to bring a high street atmosphere into the centre.


Alasdair Currie, General Manager for The Mall Walthamstow, said: “The refurbishment is great news for Walthamstow and it’s a fantastic opportunity to modernise The Mall to meet customer needs. The revamp will refresh and revitalise the inside of The Mall and add colour and vibrancy.


“We are also looking forward to working with Chris Bracey and incorporating local Walthamstow talent into our plans. We are eager to begin the renovation process and are excited to see the final results.”
