Clifton Moor has DIY, electrical and household type goods, as well as a food hypermarket, multiplex cinema, 10 pin bowling amd pizza & burger joints.
Monks Cross has 'city centre' stores in an out-of-town location, stores such as Next, BHS, Boots, Woolworths, Burtons, Dorothy Perkins, W.H. Smiths and so on. There are two food hypermarkets and the biggest travel store I have ever seen!
McArthur Glen is a 'Designer Outlet' and has stores by Ted Baker, Rockport, Armani, Paul Smith, Dolce & Gabanna, Cerutti, Reebok, Calvin Kline and so on. The stores sell surplus stock and discontinued lines, but there are definite bargains to be had if you're not too much of a fashion snob. There are also household goods, perfumes, watches and a good food court.
