Gretna retail village hails new trading milestone
Bosses at Gretna Gateway Outlet Village also hailed the busiest ever Christmas week with visitor numbers up 6 per cent on 2014 and sales 7 per cent ahead.
Figures released yesterday reveal that total sales for the 12 months up to 27 December rose 12 per cent on a year earlier. Like-for-like sales, which strip out the impact of changes in selling space and new stores, were up by 3 per cent.
General manager Peter Gardner said: “As well as bringing exciting shopping opportunities, we are now a major source of employment in the area.”
