In November 2007 news emerged that the centre (which was being refurbished after being taken over by Zurich Financial Services) was to be converted into a food emporium. The plans brought protests from the independent traders, who were removed from the Corn Exchange, and their customers.

After the restoration the Corn Exchange re-opened in November 2008 as a boutique shopping centre for independent retailers. The 13,200-sqft (1,230 m2) ground level was occupied by Piazza by Anthony until its sudden closure in June 2013. The upper levels are home to a number of retailers.
