Cirencester has a mix of shops that should cater for most people's needs.
The main shopping area centres around the Market Place (recently rennovated to include a "shared space" for use by the town's market, the Cirencester Advent Festival and other such events), Dyer Street, Cricklade Street and Castle Street. There is also a small covered shopping area called Bishops Walk and The Woolmarket off Dyer Street has lots of little shops to explore.
The Black Jack Street area has become a 'must visit' area with loads of 'nooks and crannies' to explore. And the re-development of the back of the Post Office area has brought further outlets to this area such as Joli Beau and Pashon. Encore Clothing has also opened and Lord, the "upscale full-service Barber Shop" for boys and men, has become a mainstay of this retail area.
At the top of the Market Place you will find Cricklade Street to your left and Castle Street straight ahead.
Cricklade Street is home to the likes of Seasalt, Mountain Warehouse, EE, Waterstones, Superdrug, Boots, The Body Shop, Western Computers (Apple), Oops A Daisy, Costa and Halfords.
While on Castle Street you can find Vodafone, Concord Foto, WH Smiths, White Stuff, Plum, The AGA Shop, Coffee #1, Turner & Hares and Dessous Chic as well as various estate agents and places to eat and drink.
Cirencester shoppers have a number of town centre car parks to choose from, all of which operate a pay and display system. The Forum Car Park and Brewery Car Park are "free after 3pm".
Other car parks include the Abbey Grounds car park and The Waterloo.
There are a limited number of on-street car parking spaces dotted around the town centre, notably in Cricklade Street and Dyer Street.
Womenswear is particularly well represented with many independent stores in the town (such as Jungle in Black Jack Street and Plum on Castle Street) together with established chains such as Seasalt, Dorothy Perkins and Sahara.
Other clothing and footwear shops include R. Scott & Co. (men's clothing), Rieker and Jungle.
Boots, Goldsmiths, New Wave Fish Shop and the West Cornwall Pasty Co. are further examples of the type of store to be found in the town.
Cirencester doesn't have a Currys, PC World or other large electrical retailer, but a range of electrical goods can be purchased from the catalogue shop Argos which has a presence in Dyer Street as does homeshop Gardiner Haskins. The camera shop Concord Foto is located in Castle Street.
Scattered around the town you will find the major banks and building societies including Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, Nationwide, Nat West, Santander and TSB.
The Cirencester Charter Market can be found in the Market Place every Monday and Friday.
On the outskirts of Cirencester you can find Dobbies Garden Centre and Tesco as well as a small retail park near the Love Lane area of the town.
