resize multiple features in shapefile

I have a shapefile containing more than 300 polygones in it. Each polygone touch each other, creating like a grid.

I would like to rescale each features at about 0.75 of the size they currently have but keeping their center point where they are (thus, it would create some empty space between each polygone).


If I select them all, and apply the scaling tool, it is scaling down the full shapefile and therefore moving each polygone from where they were to a new position closer to the center of the shapefile.


I saw different people asking this question already, but nobody got a workable solution.
