View Over the Eastgate Shopping Centre Development Site, 1980s

The Eastgate Centre (Part I) was built on derelict land in 1983 by Royal Life Insurance Company and Cruden Developments. Marks and Spencer was its anchor store although it was Boots the Chemists who were the first company to move into the new £13 million complex in February 1983, from their store at the corner of the High Street and Inglis Street. With the move, the store doubled its floor space, increased the staff by 42 and was the biggest to be built by Boots in that year.
