    Middlebrook is a landmark mixed-use development located at Junction 6 off the M61 motorway. At almost 676,000 sq ft (62,811 sq m), it is the largest retail and leisure destination in the UK, attracting 12.5 million shoppers a year.
    Middlebrook Retail Park has a wide catchment drawing in customers from across the North West with shoppers visiting the wide range of shops, restaurants and entertainment on the country’s largest Retail Park. Weekday shopping footfall is supported by lunchtime and evening trade from the 5,500 office workers on site, and at weekends Middlebrook has an established reputation as one of the region’s top shopping and leisure destinations.
    With over 40 stores, a nine screen Vue cinema, Hollywood Bowl and several well-known national restaurant brands the Park’s regular trade receives a considerable boost at Bank Holidays, Christmas and Easter as well as throughout the summer and the available unit is well located to take advantage of this additional holiday footfall.
    Located adjacent to the University of Bolton Stadium, home of Bolton Wanderers FC, the Retail Park includes over 40 retailers, 4 cafés, 13 restaurants, a Hollywood Bowl and is anchored by Next, ASDA, Marks & Spencer and a Vue cinema.
    Situated approximately 18 miles to the North West of Manchester, Middlebrook enjoys excellent transport links by road and rail. The development is adjacent to Junction 6 of the M61 motorway which extends the Retail Park’s catchment area North of Preston and into the regional centres of Manchester and Warrington to the South. This overall catchment area includes a population of almost 2.2M, while the core catchment has a population close to 560,000. The core catchment includes shoppers from Bolton to the East, Chorley to the North, as well as Wigan & Standish to the West.
