More hobbies on the mezzanine floor

Posted by Trevor

The planning board of Telford and Wrekin Council has just approved proposals for a  mezzanine flooring  mezzanine flooring extension to a store in a Shropshire shopping centre.

Plans put forward by retailer Hobbycraft rested on gaining permission for a mezzanine floor to be constructed in the premises presently used by the Bed Shed Clearance Company in Telford Bridge Retail Park.

Hobbycraft was launched in 1995 and now has around 60 stores across the UK, often in out-of-town retail park locations. The crafts giant caters for around 250 different hobbies and carries over 35,000 different products, some of which are quite large and bulky; for example, artists’ canvases which come in a range of sizes or unwieldy rolls of fabric.

While catering for the popular hobbies of knitting, needlework and painting, a wide range of specialist stationery is available for making wedding invitations and favours, as well as everything required to make jewellery, collages or scrapbooks.

Construction of the mezzanine floor will commence when the unit is vacant and will enable the store to display its entire range of materials. Without the extra space created by the mezzanine flooring, Hobbycraft would not have considered taking the unit, which will create an extra 40 jobs and which it hopes to open in time for Christmas.

Local councillors are enthusiastic about the new store and Councillor Shirley Reynolds said:

“I think it will be good for the town.”

The new store is anticipated to inject greater diversity into the retail mix and attract more customers to Telford Bridge.
