This will increase the convenience of the shopping experience to the customer as similar shops are grouped together which makes it easier to find your way around. Meadowhall has built up a well-established loyal customer following. As well as advertising to the existing customer base meadowhall are also trying to target the sections of the market that they haven't yet been able to attract, this is one of the aims of the 'always something new' campaign.
