A STORE which opened in 1973 celebrated its relaunch with legends from the era.
FA Cup winners Jim Montgomery, Dick Malone, Micky Horswill and former North East football correspondent for the Daily Mail, Doug Weatherall, were on hand to cut the ribbon at Makro Washington at Wear Industrial Estate.
Graham Ridley, manager at Makro Washington, said: “The store opened its doors for business in 1973 so we thought it would be great to celebrate our new-look store with a 70s theme and an appearance by some of the legends that played for Sunderland in the famous 1973 FA Cup Final.
“We are welcoming all existing Makro customers to come along and see the changes we have made.”
The store is holding a number of events this week, including a 70s disco, to mark the store’s makeover.
