    Shopping in Buxton

    by suvanki Written Aug 31, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Buxton has an array of shops catering to all needs, tastes and budgets.
    Plenty of independents amongst the chain stores and franchises.

    We spotted a 'price war' between two neighbouring shops on the High Street - Pound World V The Village Saver...Village Saver had '100's of lines at 99p or less', while Pound World had 'many items reduced to 95p'!! Perhaps they're even cheaper now...

    There are plenty of charity shops, where you can sometimes have a 'lucky find'

    Located at the edge of the Peak National Park, with it's many walking opportunities, there are some Outdoor Shops such as Mountain Warehouse, with discounted clothing and gear.

    What to pay: From pocket money prices upwards ......... How Friendly are you with your bank manager?

    Everything a pound?..... Nooooo! How low can we go? An Alladins Cave Good for buying layers.... Retail therapy in a good cause

    An assortment: Shops

    Spring Gardens is the name of the main shopping road in Buxton, it is also pedestrianised. There is a Marks and Spencer, and also off here is a shopping mall, with such shops as Next, WH Smith, Ponden Mill.
    You will see from the photograph that there are canopies made of glass over the fronts of the shops, these are Victorian and we used in that era to keep people dry whilst shopping when it was raining.

    The second photo shows the pedestrianised street with the stone which are reminders of the stone that is quarried around these parts.

    This building was originally the Thermal Baths and was built in 1820. It has been made into a small shopping mall with nice individual shops. There are about 12 small shops.
    Times for opening vary but it seems they all open on Sundays approx 12 noon - 5pm.
    Weekdays closing times seem to be about 5pm.

    What to buy: You can buy antiques, cards, men's and women's clothes, pictures, dolls and teddys.
