Shopping areas

The city centre contains many shops within its central pedestrianised area, and two dedicated shopping centres.

The Kings Walk Shopping Centre includes retailers such as HMV, WH Smith, River Island and Game. The Mall, located primarily alongside Eastgate street, boasts several small independent shops as well as larger chains such as H&M. Attached to The Mall is the still functioning indoor market, opened in the late 1960s. A portion of the old market is still visible.  Outside of the shopping centres are many other outlets including a large Debenhams, Waterstones, BHS and Argos. Three major coffee shops ( Costa, Starbucks and Nero ) and several restaurants and cafes are also present.

Gloucester Quays Outlet Centre opened in May 2009. This was built adjacent to the Peel centre complex which includes a Toys ‘R’ Us and a Hobbycraft outlet as well as a cinema. Nearby is a new Sainburys superstore.

Gloucester also has several out of town superstores located around its inner ring-road. These are typically either DIY suppliers such as B&Q, or electrical retailers such as Currys. There are also a large number of home furnishing outlets.
