New jobs at town centre shopping mall

THERE has been a double boost for the showpiece Loreburne Shopping Centre in Dumfries.

Up to 20 full-time and part-time jobs have been created through developments at the popular town centre retail hub.
Sports clothing giant, JD Sports, have doubled the size of their store.
The branded sportswear and fashion specialist has relocated from unit 22 to unit 31/32, increasing the space to 5,000 sq ft. The company has secured the unit on a new ten-year lease.
Staffing has already increased from six to 12 with a further four part-time staff being recruited.
Meanwhile, gift and stationery company, The Works, has opened a new store.
Specialising in gifts, art and crafts materials, stationery, hobbies and toy supplies, The Works, has taken on a 2,751 sq ft store on a ten-year lease.
They are employing two full-time and six part-time staff.
Ross Campbell, of Loreburne Centre owners Edinburgh House Estates, said: “JD Sports and The Works taking new units is a huge vote of confidence in the centre.”
