Following completion of the multi million pound upgrade to the Aycliffe Shopping Centre and the opening of the new Aldi store, the owners of the centre are pressing ahead with the next phase of improvements.
New signage and branding is being introduced to reflect the contemporary appearance of the shopping centre. In addition works to demolish the offices and shops adjacent to the clock tower are expected to start as soon as Northern Gas and Northern Electric have completed the job of disconnecting existing supplies to the property.
Elsewhere in the Aycliffe Centre further investment is taking place to refurbish the former Woolworths and HSBC premises.
Bryan Haldane the centre manager at the shopping centre commented that he was delighted at the ongoing commitment the owners had demonstrated to Aycliffe and was confident that new retailers would be attracted to the town centre.
