Manchester Retail Parks

of Town Shopping Centres around the Boroughs and Districts of Greater

Retail Parks have
become increasingly popular shopping venues around Greater Manchester,
and recent years have seen many new multi-million pound ventures in
retail shopping park developments spring up around the city and the
townships of the region. Most have the same familiar high street names
on show – M&S, Next, Boots, Comet, B&Q, and so forth. However,
with their out-of-town-centre locations and onsite free parking, these
names are gradually relocating from the traditional High Street into
the new Retail Parks, thanks to increased mobility through personal
transport and Sunday trading.

There follows
a list of most that can be found in the region – if you know of others,
please inform us by email.
