A £14m expansion of the Potteries Shopping Centre in Stoke-on-Trent has been approved.
Its owner, Capital Shopping Centres, plans to extend the existing complex in the city centre by adding new restaurants and a cinema.
Paul Francis, the centre's general manager, said it could create 185 jobs when completed.
The proposals went before Stoke-on-Trent City Council's planning committee on Tuesday.
Mr Francis said it is hoped the restaurants and cinema would be "up and running by early 2014".
"We really see this as a great addition to the centre, we believe there's a demand for it," he added.
