Washington Market, and the Galleries, has great transportation links with the main A1 and A19 motorways close by. It also has excellent and frequent public transport routes to the nearby housing estates, surrounding villages and the larger cities, Newcastle and Sunderland. The Galleries Shopping Centre is a major hub for the surrounding densely populated residential areas giving the shopping centre more of a community feel. Local residents use the Galleries as their main resource for shopping and lifestyle purchases, which clearly benefits the Market Village. The shopping centre has the usual tenants such as Argos, H&M, Sainsbury’s, Asda, but also contains the main post office, estate agents, solicitors, banks, housing and benefits offices and leisure centre. All of this gives the Market Village an ideal customer base and gives a constant footfall within the market where customers can take advantage of their strap line ‘for life’s essentials’, The market is approximately 30,000 sq ft, with a total of 118 potential trading units. It is home to over 50 traders and a current 98% occupancy level, with an average footfall of 50,000 per week.
