Repurposing of a void space to develop the UK's first Digital Retail Innovation Centre


In June 2019 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 innovation.


The hub, 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.
