Retail Park Extension To Create Over 230 West Midlands Jobs

A £5 million 200,000 square foot retail and leisure destination extension at Wednesbury’s Gallagher Retail Park is set to create over 230 new jobs in the West Midlands.

New leases agreements have already been signed with Costa Coffee, Currys, M&S Simply Food, Mod Pizza, Nando’s, Oak Furnitureland, Smashburger, Sofology and Tapi Carpets which will see hundreds of retail and catering vacancies added at the Wednesbury retail park.

Work on the new extension will get underway soon and is expected to be completed and ready for business in Spring next year.

Existing tenants at the West Midlands’ shopping centre include Boots, Burger King, Furniture Village, Harveys, Mamas and Papas, Next, Outfit, Pizza Hut, SCS and TK Maxx.

Elaine Costigan, a local Wednesbury councillor said: “It’s absolutely wonderful news for Wednesbury and obviously it will mean more and more people will be coming here. The idea is we would love people to pop into the retail park and then hop into the town and do some bits and bobs in the town centre – that’s an important part of this as well.

“The M&S name especially attracts people and it’s good to see there will be better restaurants rather than just McDonalds and Burger King,” added Ms Costigan.

James Bidwell, a partner of Gallagher Retail Park’s asset manager Quadrant Estates, gave further details of the expansion, saying: “These latest brands to sign further reinforce the appeal of Gallagher Retail Park, and complement the existing line-up of high profile tenants. Our aim is to continue enhancing the overall tenant mix and the consumer experience at the Park and ensure that it remains the location of choice to shop and enjoy leisure time.”

“Our plans include making substantial improvements to public realm, access, car parking and landscaping of the Park,” added Mr Bidwell.
