Thousands of people turned out on 23rd May and the following weekend for the grand opening of Whiteley Shopping Centre near Fareham, Hampshire.
The £84m development is anchored by M & S who have taken a 60,000 sq.ft store, and features 58 retail and leisure outlets including Next, H&M, River Island, Prezzo, Harvester and Chimichanga. The development has created more than 1000 new jobs. The centre’s contemporary, high quality design makes use of natural materials, and incorporates extensive landscaping. Specially commissioned public art adorns the streetscapes.
Planning permission for a new cinema on the site was granted in April and will further compliment this exciting scheme.
