New home for River Island

If you like shopping you’ll remember that H&M closed the Blackpool store earlier this year. It was a blow to all followers of fashion, but now there’s some good news to follow.

The new River Island store opened its doors on 17 November. It’s a bigger, brighter and better shop!

River Island has moved into the former H&M unit. They’ve not gone very far – just across the mall from their current store next to Next. The H&M unit is in a more prominent place so it’s good news for them. Wonder who’ll be going into the former River Island store? Mmmm, interesting, watch this space!

Houndshill Shopping Centre in Lights!

Houndshill Shopping Centre has been pleased to support Blackpool Illuminations for several years. You might remember that Houndshill sponsored Alice’s Garden tableau, located at North Shore.

Well for 2018 Houndshill Shopping Centre is centre stage on Blackpool central promenade near Tower Festival Headland, with a brand new over-the-road installation. Did you see it?

It’s at the right hand side of the external New Look entrance, opposite the Winter Gardens and behind the small surface car park near the Houndshill access ramp.
