    Yeah just got the latest trinity square brochure through, can email to you if you’d like a look? Isn’t Discount UK part of the same company? Just hoping the landlords for the empty properties act to refurbish units so there is a greater chance of letting them?

    It looks like Woolworths Gateshead is going to be one of those empty units for relocation with Poundland confirmed for Trinity Square along with CEX, Sports Direct confirmed and subway relocating from Jackson Street.

    So vacant units guessing the Ladbrokes on West Street, Subway Jackson Street, Poundland High Street.

      Thanks Darren! I’d heard that unofficially last year, but this is the first time it’s been confirmed – assuming you’ve seen it somewhere in the public domain! It’s a good unit, though (more so once Gateshead town centre gets its footfall boost from the new development being open) so I wonder if B&M or Discount UK might be tempted?
