Not enough shops for the size lots of empty stores, theirs always people about so opportunity for more investment. The council is investing a large sum into the main square this should improve things. The main shops in the center are Adsa/Wallmart Superdry Debenhams Toys R Us Marks and Spencer Dreams Argos There are a few other shops around as... More

Eastgate shopping centre is what says a shopping centre. Generally it is clean and tidy, with many national stores available from toy shops to department stores and a supermarket. It offers many places to have tea, coffee or a meal independent and national concessions. There are public conveniences which offer baby changing facilities.

Potential to be the better shopping centre locally. Need more main brand stores as there is space. Inside and outside shopping spaces. No moss bros. not a load of shops but has a selection to get by on. If you want all the shops go lakeside or Bluewater (lakeside being closer and saves dartford crossing charges)

East gate shopping centre is now looking dreary compared to the likes of lakeside and blue water . It used to be modern when it opened many years ago but unless it updates itself it's on the slippery slope as shoppers will go to one of the ultra modern centres
