Aberdeen's Bon Accord Centre is set to be transformed with a £6 million (approx. 7.3 mln.) modernization program, it was announced yesterday.
Due to begin at the start of 2011, the Bon Accord project will complement the recent £2 million facelift given to the St Nicholas Centre further consolidating the retail destination's position on the Scottish retail map. The new project also follows major refurbishment of the Bon Accord's central atrium last year and the opening of a cluster of top high street brands, effectively creating a 'fashion hub'.
Cheryl Smith, Marketing Manager of the Bon Accord and St Nicholas Centres, says the new plans will transform the Bon Accord Centre and will help cement its status as one of Scotland's top shopping and fashion destinations.
"In the last year, we have seen a wealth of new names coming to the Bon Accord and St Nicholas Centres. Some of them are prestige brands and it speaks volumes that retailers are choosing to open stores here, it really does serve to underline our position as one of Scotland's premier shopping destinations.
"This refurbishment will allow us to fully showcase our fantastic array of stores and the range and depth of shopping on offer. "The St Nicholas facelift and the central atrium have been important phases in the overall redevelopment program and we are really excited with this latest stage."
