Gretna Gateway has been a firm favourite with customers for designer brands and outlet savings since 1999, welcoming millions of customers from across Scotland and the UK.

In the shopping centre’s 20th anniversary year, Gretna Gateway are working to revitalise and restyle the village, creating a destination shopping centre in Dumfries & Galloway. Following on from the Nike stores recent refurbishment, the entire Outlet Village will undergo a complete renovation with New England style timber clad store fronts, new landscaping and an exciting new brand mix.

Just off the M74, Gretna Gateway currently has a selection of designer brand names and high street and dining favourites, welcoming over 2.3 million visitors every year. The centre will look to increase this with a stronger food and beverage offer and a designated event space to enhance customer’s experience and create a destination shopping centre both locals and tourists will enjoy. Gretna Gateway are also looking to maximise on their dog-friendly mall, with a neighbouring dog walk, designated water bowls and the majority of their retailers welcoming dogs through their doors.

Throughout this year’s planned renovations, environment, sustainability and social values remain at the forefront of Gretna Gateway’s mind. After winning a Green Apple Gold Award in 2018, Gretna Gateway has recently been named Scottish Champions in the Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice.

As well as general recycling, Gretna Gateway have introduced Can Crushers and Gum Drops to the mall to involve customers in their recycling efforts. Everything from coffee cups to cigarette butts is recycled at Gretna Gateway, with the latest initiative being crisp packet recycling. On top of this, Gretna Gateway donate old shop fittings to local charities who can reuse the materials, with only 0.71% of all the centre’s waste going to refuse derived fuel.
