Manor Mills Shopping Centre in Maynooth has just opened a new store ‘The Natural Bakery’, an Irish company that offers a wide variety of breads, cakes, sandwiches, donuts and pastries, made fresh daily from scratch. They opened their first bakery in Kilmainham in 2013 when their owner Luke Ceighan realised there is a demand for more authentic, artisan baked goods. The concept was soon a success and by 2014, The Natural Bakery opened shops in Donnybrook, Rathmines, Ranelagh and Stillorgan. In 2015, Dun Laoghaire, Clarehall, Baggot Street, IFSC and Naas followed. They now have 13 stores in Ireland.
Jenna Culligan from Sigma Retail Partners, asset managers for Manor Mills Shopping Centre, said “We acquired Manor Mills just over a year ago and one of our asset management strategies from the outset was to bring in reputable brands and enhance the food and beverage offering to raise the profile and increase traffic, footfall and dwell time into the shopping centre. We identified the need for a popular bakery that offers a wide range of tasty pastries, cakes and treats for our shoppers. We wish The Natural Bakery all the best and we are delighted to have them added to our centre.”
A significant amount has already been invested in the rebranding of Manor Mills Shopping Centre and plans for further investment are set to continue. The centre has recently installed free Wi-Fi throughout the mall adding further to its appeal to shoppers.Manor Mills Shopping Centre is centrally located within Maynooth town itself and is located adjacent to Maynooth University. The shopping centre itself is home to 30 retailers including Dunnes Stores, Carraig Donn, Eason and Hickeys Pharmacy. There are over 500 free car parking spaces in a covered car park.
