HERON Foods is set to open its doors in Church Square Shopping Centre tomorrow morning, having moved from the soon to close Hardshaw Centre.

Heron was one of the last remaining stores remaining in the Hardshaw Centre – which is set to close this year to make way for the town centre regeneration, with many other stores from the centre already moving elsewhere in the town.

However tomorrow, July 11, Heron will officially open in the former Topshop site which the retailer hopes will present an opportunity for further engagement with the community.

Steve Brogan, Centre Manager of Church Square Shopping Centre, said: “Having Heron Foods join us here at Church Square marks an exciting chapter for our shopping centre. Their relocation not only enhances our diverse retail offerings but also reinforces our commitment to providing an exceptional shopping experience for our visitors.”

“We look forward to the positive impact Heron Foods will bring to Church Square and are eager to see the continued growth and success of both our centre and their store.”

Councillor Kate Groucutt, Cabinet Member for Business, Economy and Skills at St Helens Borough Council, added: “Heron Foods is a shop that many people are keen to see staying here in St Helens town centre so we’re delighted they are making the move to Church Square. Their offer will complement the diverse range of shops at Church Square in what is a prime site in the shopping centre.”
