Wednesfield Bentley Bridge Shopping Park – Performed Strongly!

The retail sector has been giving results on how they have performed over the Christmas period. Retail has become quite a bell weather indicator of the economy and how it performs. That is the same locally.
I am aware that Bentley Bridge Shopping Park has done well in the circumstances. They were very strong in trading in the run up to Christmas, and I know that some 92,000 vehicles visited the Bentley Bridge Shopping Park in the week of the 16th of December.
Wednesfield Bentley Bridge is an important Shopping centre for Wolverhampton and Wednesfield. Around 600 jobs are located at the Shopping Park, this is an important source of jobs for local Wednesfield residents.
In economic terms the Bentley Bridge Shopping Park is an integral part of the City Economy now, the City, and Wednesfield would be the poorer now if the facility was not there.
The latest statistics I have seen indicated as the New Year approached 3,845,144m Vehicles had accessed the Shopping Park during 2019! These are whopping great numbers and with great Towns and Cities all over the Country facing up to big hits in their High Streets, it is important that we here in Wednesfield continue as a community to benefit from the ability of the Shopping Park to create and deliver local jobs.
Whilst when the final sets of statistics come in for 2019, they may be marginally down on last years visitors. Its without doubt that Wednesfield Bentley Bridge has performed well against a national retail climate of severe trading numbers.
