Primark, HMV, Next and Lush are just a few of the centre’s stores which will now allow dogs to visit, with several food outlets - such as Zapato Lounge and Muffin Break - also embracing the policy.

Although some stores remain restricted to assistance dogs only, the policy has seen the majority of Grosvenor Shopping Northampton’s high-street and independent retailers adopt

a dog-friendly approach.

Dog owners are being reminded by the shopping centre that dogs must be supervised at all times and anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.

A full list of the stores that are now dog-friendly can be found on the Grosvenor shopping centre’s website or guests can find out more by visiting the Customer Service team in-centre.
