Primark and 3store have also invested in new store designs for their premises.

“The leasing team at Oak Mall are delighted by the new additions to the tenant line-up in Greenock.
“We continue to work with new and existing occupiers to ensure that the trading environment at Oak Mall meets the needs of the town centre. We welcome the new retailers and we are confident they will further enhance the current retail offer.”
John Conroy, Retail Agency Partner at Ryden, added:
“With over 50 shops, Oak Mall is Inverclyde’s premier covered shopping centre, offering exceptional opportunities for both retail and non-retail uses.
“We are continually encouraged by the level of interest in the shopping centre from both new and existing occupiers, notwithstanding what is generally acknowledged to be a tough retail market.”
