Sheffield Moor tipped for return to retail greatness

Author: Paul Smithson - 28 December 2012

Sheffield's The Moor shopping area has been tipped for a resurgence thanks to all the redevelopment going on there.

The repaving of the public realm is due to be completed by April 2013 and street furniture including outdoor litter bins will also be added, reports, but now a new planning application has been submitted for a new retail unit that would host shops, restaurants and a cinema.

Nick Atkinson, managing director of Atkinsons department store on The Moor, hailed the plans, saying: "Since the building works have begun on the new shops and market there is a strong indication the public have been coming down to see what is going on, which is encouraging. The Moor was one of Sheffield's greatest retail streets and it can be again."

Another new addition to the area will be the Moor Market, which is currently scheduled to be completed in November 2013, while the former location of an Argos store is being utilised by a stone carver to engrave street furniture.

Shops in the area have enjoyed a positive start to the post-Christmas period, according to, with shoppers queueing outside outlets on The Moor before they had even opened on Thursday (December 27th).

Julie Hancock, acting manager at TJ Hughes, said sales have been "fantastic" and the shop has been much busier than expected.
