Regeneration initiatives are set to continue all over the city of Sheffield in the coming years, including projects in Banner Cross, Hillsborough, Sheffield Antiques Quarter, Spittle Hill and Stocksbridge.
Image Sign Studio shop sign makers in Sheffield have recently been involved in an absolutely fantastic project helping to revamp the rundown shop fronts of 47 independent shops in Darnall, a suburb in the East of the city of Sheffield. The project started at the end of March this year, in an attempt to smarten up the area, boost the amount of shoppers using the stores, and attract investment.
Regeneration of Retail Premises and Shop Signs Sheffield
The £300,000 refurbishment project, which saw the shops on Main Road and Staniforth Road receiving impressive makeovers, includes new retail shop signs which have been designed, manufactured and installed by Image Sign Studio. As shop sign makers in Sheffield, they know the dramatic effect a new shop sign can have on the exterior of a retail premises, and were more than happy to be involved in the Darnall revamp.
Two years ago, a citywide strategy was approved by Sheffield City Council to help support and promote local shopping centres. This project is being paid for by the Local Growth Fund, which comprises of money given to Sheffield Council to be used for projects that benefit the local area and the community. Darnall shopping centre was identified as having an unwelcoming environment, with some buildings in a poor state of repair and a high number of badly-maintained, empty shops.
Boost to Darnall Shopping Centre with New Shop Signs Sheffield
As professional shop sign makers in Sheffield, Image Sign Studio have already been asked to design, manufacture and produce the retail shop signs for the Spittle Hill regeneration project, which of course we are delighted to be involved in!
Councellor Harry Harpham, Sheffield Council cabinet member for homes and neighbourhoods, said “Darnall has all the ingredients to be a thriving and successful district shopping centre – a strong community, good range of shops and community facilities, and access to transport links. But the quality of the shopping is poor in relation to a centre that serves such a wide residential area and many shops are in a poor state of repair. This will help the area become more attractive to shoppers and boost the centre’s potential.”
