Shoppers are flocking in record numbers to Edmonton Green Shopping Centre, according to new research.

Latest figures show that on average, an extra 19,000 people now visit the shopping centre compared to the previous year, taking the average weekly visitor numbers to around 210,000.

There is also a significant increase in the percentage of people visiting the newly refurbished South Mall, showing that investment and regeneration are key to providing a viable and successful retail centre.

Enfield Council's cabinet member for business and regeneration, Councillor Del Goddard, said: "These welcome figures show that shoppers in Edmonton Green like to buy locally and that the efforts of Enfield Council and St Modwen have made to improve the shopping experience in Edmonton Green are paying off.

The council has been making significant investments to improve local centres for Enfield’s residents and has been working with the shopping centre’s owner, St Modwen, on specific improvements to this important local amenity.

These include the regeneration of South Mall and the opening of the new Travelodge hotel, the significant work done by the council to improve the streetscape of Edmonton Green through the use of the London Mayor’s Outer London Fund, and the refurbishment of Green Towers to provide a modern multi-purpose community venue.
