The Cwmbran Centre welcomed 1.6 million more visitors in 2023 than in 2022, an increase of 6% – and a bucking of national trends.

Christmas footfall at the scheme – which is owned by LCP, part of M Core – also increased by 700,000 to 2.38 million.

Spanning over 740,000 sq ft, The Cwmbran Centre is home to 180 retail units and is anchored by the likes of Dunelm and Primark. It also welcomed a number of new tenants last year, including The Range, Coffee#1, Loungers, One Beyond, and a number of independent traders.

Alex Williams, of LCP, said: “The arrival of several high calibre retailers at Cwmbran Centre has contributed to a continued increase in footfall and ensured that the town centre remains the  leading shopping experience in the region.”

“Over Christmas, our markets, festive events and themed lights switch on were all huge hits, helping us to achieve a 29% growth in visitor numbers.” 

“It’s important to us to understand what makes a local community tick and what kind of shops and brands will work in a location. This means working closely with the community and talking to shoppers regularly about what they want. We look forward to working together to deliver continued success into 2024 and beyond”.
