we saw the opening of the UK’s first Digital Retail Innovation Centre at the
Eastgate Shopping Centre in Gloucester working in partnership with GFirst LEP,
Gloucester City Council and Marketing Gloucester.
This is the
first hub of its kind designed to support retail entrepreneurship through the
development of a Digital High St Lab to foster innovation and incubation of new
retail businesses supporting retailers adapt in an age of rapid digital
located on the first floor of The Eastgate Shopping Centre was officially
opened by Diane Savory OBE, chair of the GFirst LEP, who invested £400,000 of
government funding to facilitate the new Hub.
