I’m not sure if this is just over speculation or if it actually means anything but there seemed to be a group of people waiting in a queue outside the doors of Skechers when I walked down The Moor about half an hour ago. Could it be that Skechers is opening tomorrow?

Also, the escalator in Next was in motion when I walked past. Looks as though Next is very nearly complete.

The queue may be applicants for jobs in the store. Who I guess will need training etc before the shop opens

New store opens in the "Next" couple of weeks

I think it's already been mentioned but it also claims further down the article

Quote:
Primark moved to The Moor in September 2018 and Mr Huby added that H&M, New Look and Lane7 Bowling Alley will all be open 'in time for Christmas trading'.

More info on Lane7

https://www.thestar.co.uk/best-in/ba...s-autumn-70733

Quote:
Lane7’s new venue on The Moor will also feature attractions like mini-golf, retro arcade games and pool tables, it has been revealed.

New images show how the latest addition to the resurgent shopping parade could look, with an eclectic mix of styles from industrial lighting and bare brick walls to cabaret lamps and plush seating.

Lane7 already has branches in Newcastle, Birmingham, Aberdeen, Middlesbrough and Liverpool, plus plans to open in six more cities, including Sheffield.

It was announced in February last year that the chain would be coming to The Moor, but before now there had been no details of when it was expected to open.

The new bowling alley is part of the third phase of The Moor’s redevelopment, including a new H&M store at the top of the street, where Redgates toy store used to be.

The ongoing transformation, previous stages of which included the opening of The Light cinema and The Moor Market, helped attract 11.2 million visitors to The Moor in 2017 – a 22 per cent increase in footfall from the previous year.

Kirsty Anderson, Lane7’s head of sales and marketing, said: “Lane7 is set to open its doors in Sheffield this autumn, promising the city a unique bowling experience ‘like you’ve never seen before.

“We will be bringing our quirky concept to the city after success across the country with locations in Newcastle, Birmingham, Aberdeen, Middlesbrough and Liverpool, up to three further openings scheduled in 2019 and more planned for 2020.

“Located on The Moor, the two-floor venue will provide a family-friendly offer by day before transforming into a bustling nightlife destination which incorporates bowling and an in-house bar with a relaxed food offering and attractions such as mini-golf, retro arcade games, pool and a darts area.”

Lane7’s director Tim Wilks last year said he was ‘excited’ to be a part of what’s happening in Sheffield city centre. He told at the time how the Sheffield branch would have a restaurant and he expected it to feature at least 10 lanes.

The firm’s existing venues offer a range of attractions alongside bowling, including karaoke, beer pong and table tennis.

Skipping ahead a little, but are there any further phases planned once the current one under construction is complete?

I think this is looking pretty good, you don't see it in photos but there are some details on the stonework that look much better in person.

Hopefully they will not let it get run down with daily grime and it will at least be cleaned once in a while.

It looks very 1930ish to me, I like it a lot and it blends in with The Moor very well. Definitely "better than was there before"

Skechers has now been revealed and is causing confusion as people keep going to the doors thinking it is open.

It is full of stock, but they seem to be doing staff training. Assume itíll open this weekend to the public.

Yes, though I hope in the future that junction and road are changed & downgraded further. This is essentially the centre of Sheffield's retail now, and whilst I don't suppose complete removal of vehicles is likely or even beneficial (I use the bus stop at the top of the Moor quite frequently now), I think that carriageway is still too detrimental to the overall public space between The Moor and Cambridge Street.

If and when access to John Lewis car park is no longer needed from this road*, I'd like to see the eastbound removed completely (from the Rockingham Street Junction to at least Pinstone Street, if not Union Street or even Furnival Gate rbt).

I could live with the west bound bus lane remaining, if the surface was raised, just one lane, and there was a super crossing in place which was actually green for pedestrians more than the buses (there are crossings which use sensors to detect a vehicles presence and subsequently turn the light to green for vehicles - after a wait. If nothing else, removing the northbound lane on Pinstone Street would allow for a widened pavement there, practically creating a square with a southbound bus lane on the far side.


*I'll let you ponder as to exactly what context that might be.

None of this is confirmed but there is an ARUP report from Cycle Sheffield which shows some of the options they are considering at the junction you are talking about
