Covered shopping mall – called The Quadrant Key store is Debenhams Also pedestrianised street – Oxford Street, Swansea ONLY ONE CBD IN ANY TOWN OR CITY THE RETAIL PATTERN OF SWANSEA
Parades of shops on feeder roads – Saint Helens Road, Swansea Fast food outlets and shops for local ethnic groups SEVERAL FEEDER ROADS LEADING OUT FROM CBD
SA1 regeneration scheme – has its own convenience store Tesco Express (3 in the inner city) SCATTERED WIDELY THROUGHOUT THE CITY SERVING RESIDENTIAL AREAS
The Mumbles – Swansea suburban shopping centre Butchers, bakers etc. Gift shops and charity shops. Fast food, off licenses SEVERAL KEY SUBURBS OF THE CITY WILL HAVE THEIR OWN MINOR SHOPPING AREAS
Large supermarkets (Tesco Extra) at Fforestfach Retail Park – NW Swansea Long hours, busy at weekends Fashion stores like Next – compete with CBD large car parks – appeal to affluent shoppers with cars Edge of city location near good roads (M4) SEVERAL MAJOR HYPERMARKETS SPREAD AROUND THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE CITY CLOSE TO MAJOR ROAD JUNCTIONS. Lots of smaller supermarkets serving local communities.
Small rural settlements have suffered from competition from supermarkets in neighbouring larger towns cities. Very few stores survive – maybe the village Post Office and store? The commuters from Bishopston mainly shop in Swansea. May buy from local farmer’s markets occasionally at weekends.
