Bounce trampoline centre set to take over B store at Anglia Retail Park in Ipswich when it closes this summer Bounce, which is already up and running in Milton Keynes, have confirmed they are taking over 50,000sq ft of the B store at the Anglia Retail Park near Whitehouse which is due to close this summer.
It looks set to be a major attraction and bring many visitors, and create new jobs, for the town. Gary Knil, managing director of Bounce Trampoline Centres, said: "We want to come to Ipswich. We were already looking and selected Ipswich before burberry bags online we knew about the B closing." They are now going through the planning process but he believes the site could be fitted out within 90 days of the DIY store closing. Bounce is already in operation in Milton Keynes "Generally planning takes 75 days and if we get the building in the last quarter, we would love to have it up and running by the end of the year." The centre would be an attraction for the whole family, he said, with 27,000 to 30,000 sq ft of the site being taken over by trampolines and a further 20,00 sq ft given over to a soft play zone. The Billy Beez soft play area which would be suitable for children upto the age of six is a new concept for the chain. "This will be a first for the UK, and it will be in Ipswich," said Mr Knil. Plans have been revealed to open a Bounce trampolining and entertainment centre in Ipswich "We are pioneers of trampoline centres and we intend to grow through new openings and franchising. "Milton Keynes has been open two years, and is successful and popular burberry online store uk with the public. We also have Jump Box in Dubai." The Milton Keynes centre attracted more than 350,00 customers last year. The centre is open to all ages, Mr Knil said, and is especially popular with the youngsters aged three to 18. Bounce Ipswich could open by the end of the year Research by the company has shown that parents are happy to drive for upto 20 minutes to reach a park like Bounce, and there are 285,000 people living within a comfortable travelling distance of the Ipswich site. "Ipswich is in a fabulous position, because it is growing rapidly between the three to 12 age group over the next three years. "Anglia Retail Park offers a perfect opportunity for those living in Ipswich and its surrounding area to experience something very new and exciting, combining fun, family entertainment and exercise, in a safe and rewarding environment." Simon Hoad, director of Anglia Retail Park owners Trinstar, said a change of use application had been submitted seeking permission to adapt the site from retail to leisure use. He said: "Anglia Retail Park is a highly accessible gateway site for Ipswich which has suffered over the last few years in a changing retail environment. This is a first for Ipswich and, our submission of a planning application for Bounce is aimed at adding to the exciting opportunities which Ipswich has to offer. Generation Brand has grown since the 80's. I'm just wondering who will be bouncing during term time. Perhaps parents will pay and arm and a leg for abouncing birthday party venue. The few friends and cake and sarnies and a few games at home are no longer enough the young, it seems. Mind you lot cheaper and simpler. Any way, it looks as though that area will now be off my shopping experience. It's only us grown ups that pay council tax, yet we are poorly served there. Sarky, funny comment about 'adults' jumping up and down. Did you know that Stone Age Man's brain was bigger than modern man's? No surprise really. A lot of people find it difficult to survive today even with all the benefits they get. How long do you think they would survive in the stone age? I would give them two days at the most! The place being used at all is better than nothing but like most fads, trampolining won't be popular for that long. Maybe they'll open ten pin bowling alley when trampolining losses it's appeal. Probably the only jobs this will supply will be minimum wage part time work for teenagers and young people who can't find proper jobs in this town. I do sometimes wonder at the theory of evolution adults paying to jump up and down. Still with all our shops now fast food and coffee outlets, maybe this is what the average normally car bound Ipswichian needs to shed a few pounds after stuffing their faces with burgers, doughnuts and hotdogs whilst walking for a change round town on a Saturday with obligatory bottle of water in hand and of course decked out in sport based clothing which by their average shapes never gets used for its original purpose! Hardly likely to do much for the dearth of shopping choice though. This isn't such great news. The floor space to jobs ratio will burberry umbrella be poor. This won't attract people in terms of a tourist attraction or significant POI. A trampoline centre exists in Colchester many people with children in Ipswich may never have heard of it. and its just down the road. so why not? It also limits people travelling from far and wide. The nail in the coffin is likely to be the cost. so I am sure its bumper trade in school holidays but at other times they will probably struggle. They advertise 12 per first hour (5+), and 5 hour there after, plus 2.50 for socks, and 5hr per parent (rounded up figures). burberry bags sale uk if you have a few kids this can easily multiply. So for a 2 adult 3 kids family only going for an hour it will cost you 53.50 (without refreshments from cafe etc) which makes the cinema look better value for money Cineworld around 44 for 2 hours (family ticket (2adult,2child) and 1 child). I think for most it will be a once in a lifetime opportunity, you go once, tick the box. don't return.
I think it is very positive that it won't remain empty and they already have a tenant who will help kids do more exercise. Personally, I think a Sainsburys and Argos would have been more ideal. Then they could close down Hadleigh Road building flats with a shopping parade and close down Argos Suffolk Retail Park and Argos Carr Street.
