Re-Ena-Gising Plans For Ena Mill

5 August 2015

Ena Mill

Here at haleys we’ve seen many of our clients grow over the years and move to new premises, but for Ena Mill it’s so far been a summer of planning for huge expansion at their original base in Atherton, Greater Manchester.

Directors of the retail outlet are confident of securing development plans that would see a theatre, restaurants and a museum, along with much more retail space, added to the 200 brands already established at the mill.

It’s all part of taking the customer experience to the next level as directors Simon Yates and Jonathan Addis embark on the next phase of development.

The old Engine Room has already been identified as the location to house the museum and theatre, with huge conversion jobs also set to transform the currently empty first floor into further retail space covering 40,000 square feet – an ideal location for more fashion brands at the mill along with a restaurant.

Of course with significant expansion to the site, there becomes an issue of adequate car parking space to cater for the increase in visitors and staff, but plans to address this through extending the outlet’s car park are also being considered alongside the internal updates.

As a result of the proposed changes, staff numbers at Ena Mill are expected to double from 60 to 120 within the next three years – a big, reassuring boost for the future of the mill and everyone involved in the upgrade project.

Ena Mill has a rich history in the Atherton area, between Bolton and Wigan, having been primarily used as a textile mill during the Industrial Revolution. It launched as a retail outlet four years ago and is situated on a Grade II listed site.
