New Stores at Houndshill Shopping Centre

Summer 2022 has seen a few changes at Blackpool’s shopping centre. There’s a brand new cafe opened in the centre of the mall – and a brand new shoe shop coming soon.

According to local sources, an announcement is coming soon about the empty Debenhams store. There’s been speculation that the House of Fraser Group, also owners of Sports Direct, would be taking over the store. They’ve recently taken over the former Debenhams in Gateshead.

And of course the new extension is steaming along at Coronation Street – which will be home to a new Wilko store along with Backlot Cinema.

Muffin Break

This new shop opened on Friday 26 August 2022 in time for the Bank Holiday weekend. Find them opposite River Island and Next where the large, bright Muffin break coffee shop is well stocked with loads of goodies!

Choose from a good selection of hot and cold sandwiches and savoury treats and plenty of drinks. And then, of course, the cake. Goodness me they all look delightful, which one will you choose?

We caught the brand new store right at the end of service just a few days after opening. Take a look inside in this video –

Skechers – Opening Soon

Eagle eyed shoppers will have spotted the new window graphics on the former Toy Store/Disney Store at the beginning of September ’22. Our friends at Blackpool BID snapped this photo –

Shopfitters are hard at work inside the unit which is ‘opening soon’, and they’re usually pretty quick. So we’d expect it’s not going to be long before the popular footwear brand opens in the town. After all, who doesn’t love a comfy pair of shoes!

Interested in working in this new store? Recruitment is underway and anyone interested should email recruitment@skxcsk.co.uk

Quick Guide to Houndshill Shopping Centre

Houndshill Shopping Centre is just a stone’s throw from Blackpool seafront – right at the heart of the town centre – near to Blackpool Tower.

Find it sandwiched between Blackpool Winter Gardens and Bank Hey Street (where the back door of Blackpool Tower is).

In the next photo it’s the whole building along the left of the shot. The sea is straight ahead!

Join us for a walk around inside, filmed in June 2020 just after reopening following the Covid lockdowns.

Access to the Houndshill is from Victoria Street (above), Coronation Street and Adelaide Street (below). You can also go through Primark too.

A big, pay on exit, multi-storey car park is incorporated into the complex. The car park is also open outside shopping hours – so you can park here and take in a show or have a meal.

Access to the car park once the stores and main malls have closed is via the side door. 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.

Opening Times

Monday to Saturday – 9am to 5.30pm
Sunday – 10.30am to 4.30pm

Bank Holidays – 9am to 5.30pm

Designed for your Comfort

Inside, the shopping is all on one flat level with even tiled floors, so it’s perfect for pushchairs and wheelchairs.

As you’d expect from a purpose built space, your comfort and convenience is the most important thing. There are comfortable seats where you can rest your feet while you plan your next shopping adventure. It’s ideal for anyone who isn’t too fit and healthy.

Upstairs (up the escalator) are public toilets and the food hall. Take your pick from different food retailers and eat at one of the tables.

It’s also a great place to visit when the weather is poor. With everything undercover you won’t get wet on rainy days. The modern, bright and light mall is perfect for passing an enjoyable afternoon – whatever the weather!

High Street Names and Independent Traders

The indoor mall has over 60 units, featuring high street names and independent traders. Sadly Debenhams closed in April 2021 – but watch this space as a new tenant completes negotiations for the store! You can still enjoy the huge Primark store, Next, River Island and many more.

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.

In 2018 it was centre stage on Blackpool central promenade near Tower Festival Headland, with a brand new over-the-road installation. Did you see it?
