MK1 Shopping Park is the newest shopping destination in Milton Keynes, owned by the Crown Estate, and is home to H&M, Outfit, River Island and Marks & Spencer. The latest addition to the site will be MK’s first Primark, which opens at 9am on Wednesday 12th December, while New Look is set to open its doors in time for Christmas.

The shopping park has already created over 200 new jobs in the area, with a mix of management, full-time and part-time.

MK1 Shopping Park will celebrate Christmas with a festive flavour on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th December, with an exclusive free two-day ice rink. Between 10am and 5pm both days, shoppers can take a skate across the ice to celebrate the new Shopping Park. Some lucky customers will also receive a free bag for life simply for visiting.

X Factor Finalists MK1 will also appear at the Shopping Park on Sunday 9th December from 12pm as they take to the ice to perform some of their favourite tracks. The urban hip-hop duo, made up of best friends Charlie Rundle and Simeon Dixon, rose to fame through this year’s ‘The X Factor’, reaching the live finals of the talent competition.

Jenny Mulligan, Regional Portfolio Manager at The Crown Estate said: “We hope that all shoppers, including those who have never visited before, can join us for some fun on our Grand Opening weekend, as we welcome our ‘namemate’ MK1 to the park for our fantastic celebrations.”
