40 years and thriving

The Galleries shopping centre at Washington is celebrating its 40th year with new stores and tenancy expansions.

M&G Real Estate reports Select fashions having moved to space 58% larger on a 10 year lease. EE, formerly Orange, in a restructured lease, is reinforcing its commitment. Independent retailers Bags 4U and Doxford Carpets have also moved in.

The future of the town centre post office has also been secured through a relocation within. The Health Shop, a longtime occupier, has entered a larger unit. And Asda has invested more there.
