Repair work to the School Street shops is now complete after a devastating fire struck last year.
The row of shops were this week looking in tip-top shape.
Westhoughton councillor David Wilkinson said: “It is great to see the building back to normal. Hopefully the businesses are able to get back on their feet quickly.”
The huge fire broke out in June 2014 and was tackled by more than 20 firefighters. Since then it has taken months of repair work to get the important town centre building back into full use.
