Nene Courts gets Frozen fever – read on to find out more….
Nene Court Retail Park in Wellingborough is based at the former Victorian Gas Light factory site, dating back to 1833, which has been renovated and restored to house bespoke boutiques.
Northamptonshire’s Marcel Binley and his family took over ownership of the site in 1991 and Nene Court has evolved and expanded during the past 15 years as renovation of the original buildings progressed.
Independent, local retailers are encouraged at Nene Court as it adds to the unique offering of the site. It currently houses 17 different businesses ranging from coffee suppliers to camping equipment, and antiques to the latest footwear.
Nene Court is located on The Embankment just off the A45 and is open seven days a week with free parking. For more information visit www.nenecourt.com
