Silverburn (also known as Pollok Town Centre or The Centre) is an 'out of town' shopping centre located on Barrhead Road in Pollok, Glasgow, Scotland. The development replaces the 75 acre (214,000 sq ft) Pollok centre with a brand new 1,500,000-square-foot (100,000 m2) shopping centre, anchored by Tesco, Next, Marks & Spencer and Debenhams.
The completed Silverburn opened for the first time on Thursday 25 October 2007, although at the time the largest Scottish Tesco Extra opened on 10 July 2006 at the site, replacing the Tesco store in the old Pollok Centre. The Centre houses 95 shopping units and 14 restaurants and cafes.
Developed by Retail Property Holdings Ltd (RPH), it is one of the largest shopping centres in the UK.
The Centre is Glasgow's fifth out of town shopping centre. Catering for a target population from across Scotland, the Centre arguably benefits Ayrshire, especially with the completion of the M77 to Kilmarnock. The developers aimed to attract shoppers from nearby Newton Mearns, Clarkston, Giffnock and Barrhead as well as the towns and villages in Ayrshire.
In 2015, The Centre expanded to include a Cineworld cinema and 9 restaurants including Zizzi & Pizza Express which opened in 2014.
