thecentre:mk has reported record footfall figures in the weeks leading up to Christmas and over the festive period.

Robert Hall, Centre Director, said: “It has been incredibly busy with queues of 1000 people developing at 1am to get into Next on Boxing Day; likewise John Lewis have been particularly busy reporting a 20 per cent increase in footfall. This is a crucial time for retailers, with so many guests tightening their purse strings, however the phenomenal success we have seen over the Christmas and sale launch period is evidence of the strong local and regional pull of thecentre:mk.

“The sales are now in full swing at thecentre:mk and we are confident that with some huge reductions of 50 per cent and over in stores including House of Fraser, John Lewis, Boots, Next and Marks and Spencer we will continue to attract crowds as we move further into 2012.”
