ONLINE EXHIBITION: Shop Locally

Have you ever wondered where local people went shopping before the 1987 opening of Westfield’s Eastgardens?

If so make sure you check out our new online exhibition about the history of our local shops. You’ll discover our earliest stores, the creative adverts by local shopkeepers, as well as the dramatic changes that supermarkets and shopping centres brought in the 1950s and 60s.
