    General Tip: Shopping In Torquay

    by johngayton Updated Aug 2, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another example of Torquay’s capriciousness is the range of shops here. There are some very upmarket stores such as Hoopers, overlooking the harbour, which offers serious designer goods at appropriately serious prices whilst just round the corner the budget chains such as Primark and T-Max do things for a tenth of the price (or less).

    Most of the major chains are represented, as are service companies such as banks and insurers, but you don't have to look far afield for all sorts of small, local, independent specialist outlets such as those in the Pavilion.

    This isn't a criticism at all - I like shopping in Torquay and heartily recommend the town centre for the variety and comprehensiveness of the offerings and generally everyone is helpful and friendly.
