This new store, decorated in an industrial style, was able to see the light of day thanks to the requalification project of the Galerie de France, initiated by the City of Chartres and the Chartres Métropole urban community as part of the Action Cœur de Ville program.
“The objective was to regain dynamism in the city center”, recalls Élisabeth Fromont, deputy mayor of Chartres and president of the mixed economy company (SEM) Chartres Développements immobiliers.
After months of negotiations with the twelve owners, the SEM bought the whole of the Galerie de France and launched restructuring work to remove the twenty-one existing commercial spaces and create a vast space of 1,300 m2, rented to Go Sport .
