Retail Giants to Move Into Stranraer

COUNCILLORS have cleared the way for retail giants Argos, New Look and Birthdays to move into Stranraer in the new year.

At Wednesday's planning committee meeting, members agreed unanimously to approve an application from Palisade Properties PLC to demolish the 200-year old Bellevilla House in the town centre in order to build a mini shopping complex.

Now the company will begin work as soon as plans for drainage and parking are finally approved by the council.

A modern shopping block of three units will be built which, avoiding any last minute hitches, will be rented by Argos, New Look and Birthdays.

And that will be music to the ears of Stranraer shoppers who have demanded more substantial clothes stores in the town.

Palisade Director Paul Doherty told the "Free Press" this week

"We are hoping to put the finishing touches to tenants deals so when these are tied up legally we will start on site hopefully that will be within six to eight weeks.

"The whole job is being treated as a six month project"
