    Smile St Johns Shopping Area

    ST JOHNS shopping centre in Liverpool is to be completely rebuilt as part of a plan by its owner to compete with Grosvenor's Liverpool One scheme.

    Landlord Land Securities will be investing tens of millions of pounds in the complete overhaul of the centre from 2009 onwards. The company will also spend £5m on its nearby Clayton Square shops.

    The news about the major revamp for St Johns has been revealed in a podcast interview that can be heard in full at the Daily Post's business website, thebusinessweek.co.uk.

    In the interview, Clayton Square centre manager Ed Oliver, who is also vice chairman of Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, said the investment by Land Securities was in response to growing competition from the development of Liverpool One, the arrival in town of Primark and the refurbishment of Marks & Spencer on Church Street.

    Mr Oliver added: "There is a long-term plan for St Johns, a five-year project starting in

    2009. It's such a large project that we could not start it now and finish it in time for Capital of Culture, so the view is to start it after Capital of Culture in 2009."It's virtually the complete rebuilding of St Johns.

    Will this be the third or the fourth time it's been rebuilt (or revamped)?
    It's always looked tacky, anyway.

    Think they were talking about this last summer, and stated then they would not be starting till after 2008 for the Capital of Culture reasoning.

    Clayton Sq is awful and considering they knocked down quite a bit it's also very small.

    It's disgusting. As if the hoards of overweight miserable looking people buying ****e aren't enough, we have to have mirrors to multiply them. And then low ceilings to add to the claustrophobia. And then an endless plethora of cheap shoe (shu?) shops.

    And then Food Court. Oh my god it's disgusting in there.

    I hope they knock it down sooner rather than later...

    ! ... that's just what it is like

    I just use it as a cut through.

    Very occassionally, near Xmas time usually, I might take a quick look in Woolworths, but there is nothing else in that precinct that I bother with.

    Ok - Wilkinsons is ok for certain bits & pieces - household things or plant pots


    I never look in any of those tacky shoe shops and clothes shops full of either tracksuits and trainers or teeny bopper tat


    .. as for the market - it's just so depressing.


    Clayton sq isn't much to write home about. There's nothing particularly nice about it.
