This is a great shopping centre since it's been done up.
It's easy to get round and has all the shops that you'd expect to see in a shopping centre. Unfortunately they are all chains there are no independant businesses. Parking is on the expensive side but is very convenient.
An excellent selection of all types of shop under one roof. Although I remember Warrington with a traditional open market, this is, in fact, quite a good shopping area. The main complaints are regarding the car parking; notably that, when busy, it is almost impossible to get out, with one small exit for all the levels.
Personally, we always go by bus or walk, but this is because we live close enough. If they want to seriously compete with places like Liverpool 1 and Trafford Centre, they must improve this. The shops are already on the way towards competing. I have also been impressed with how well-kept it always looks. There seem to be sufficient staff to maintain the cleanliness - what a rarity!
I have a feeling that Golden Square is good for Golden Square
Visitors add to the congestion, park up in the adjacent car park, shop and leave. It looks like it's already having a negative impact on the high street and independent retailers. I think there will be very little overspill to the town centre shops. I'm sure those who like shopping centres will like it and as shopping centres go it is very nice. But it's not for me. PS. It is ugly from the outside.
The shopping centre is largely an improvement, however as it has been enlarged by adding on to the existing centre the path taken while shopping is not smooth. That said it has attracted new shops which can only be a bonus
to some it up. its an average joe. not everyone has one of these mini shopping centres in the middle of town. unless ur birmingham u got a massive one(bullring).
good selection of shops, enough for men, enough for women, and even enough for the kids.
it doesnt look that big, but when theres no school kids etc, it is really spacious. really nice.
I had really high hopes when this new mall was opening, however it isn't as fantastic as we were first led to believe. Yes, we do have some fantastic new shops that we didn't have before, such as Bank, republic and our very own Debenhams, however the mall is still on the small side and isn't as large and comprehensive as we first thought. Moaning aside it is a huge improvement on the original Golden Square and looks very fancy. The Car Parking is okay, but we could still do with a few more spaces. Loads of coffee shops and places to eat so this is good. Overall a mixed bag!
I was really pleased when I heard that the Golden Square was going to be redeveloped yet over 12 months since its been open, its a disappointment. Not all the units are open, the new half has been tagged onto the existing centre so if you want to get to one place you have to walk all the way around, theres no way of cutting through, which is annoying if you just want to go to WHSmiths. The choice of shops is interesting with a Sony shop, and H&M but I feel that its yet to reach its full potential and could do without those irritating people with stalls who like to grab your nails and try to sell dead sea mud products to you
