A Blackpool shopping centre has launched a new mobile ‘app’ in the hope it will aid customers walking around its precincts.

The app, which has been launched by the Houndshill centre, is now available for shoppers to download.

The Shopper App has a variety of features to aid people to plan their entire visit to the centre – including store directory, opening times, directions, event information and offers.

It provides links to the resort’s major tourism websites, such as Visit Blackpool, Winter Gardens, Grand Theatre, Pleasure Beach and Blackpool Zoo.

A spokesman for the centre said: “The app provides a distinctly different presence to the shopping centre’s online platforms, as it delivers a world of information at a touch of a button anywhere, engaging with shoppers in a way that is both fun and helpful.

“It has a slick interactive design which is easy to use and provides everything you could possible need while shopping in the centre.”

The Shopper App is available to download for free directly from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store by searching for the phrase ‘Houndshill Shopping Centre’.
