St Enoch Centre hungry for growth with £1.5m food court investment
Glasgow’s St Enoch shopping centre has revealed plans to invest £1.5m in a new look food court in an effort to provide a more modern environment for shoppers while providing additional seating.

Delivered ahead of a leisure-led expansion of the centre this will see an additional 200 seats added to the 700 currently on offer, with USB charging points also on offer for diners to replenish power on their mobile devices.

An upgraded children’s play area, scheduled to complete at the end of April, will benefit from a new buggy park and interactive play equipment.

Anne Ledgerwood, general manager of St. Enoch Centre, remarked: “Today’s shoppers are looking for comfort as well as convenience, especially as dining out continues to play an increasing important role in the retail experience.

It is hoped that such efforts will pay for themselves by drawing in more diverse trade including city centre workers seeking a coffee while also drawing in additional tenants to occupy three new food kiosks.

Lipstick on a pig...
The whole centre is in dire need of a proper makeover, poor quality shop selection with whole areas of empty units, and no particular stand out offering that makes you need to visit the centre. Embarrassed to take visitors there.
The last time I went there, I left some of my lunch only to see someone slip into my seat as I walked away and finish it off!! Put me off going again..!

Do the consultants and contractors always pull a fast on on St. Enoch management? Looks like the worst spent £1.5m ever seen!

Plans, should also be put in place to demolish the outside seating area at the entrance to the St Enoch centre. It is polutted with pigeons and their waste. Not an attractive entrance, that makes you want to visit the centre. Especially if you end up covered in Pigeon poo!

Does not look like a £1.5 million makeover. A few quality restaurants would be a welcome addition. Not everyone wants to sit in a school canteen environment when out shopping. Hopefully it will not just be a big open hall.
