Grand Arcade welcomes high street name back to Wigan

A Wigan shopping centre has welcomed the popular health and beauty chain Savers back to the town.

It opened their doors in the Grand Arcade, creating an additional seven jobs by doing so.

Founded in Durham in 1988, the newest store becomes one of more than 500 across the UK, and is now part of the multi-national AS Watson Group.

Its Wigan re-opening – after the previous store vacated The Galleries as it prepared for demolition – prompted customers to fill their baskets with discounted products.
