Ah the Kingdom Centre. With a real anchor store it still manages to be a pretty vibrant town centre shopping centre. McDonalds has closed (moved outside the centre), the Co-op department store is gone and Safeways has been away even longer. Scottish Power closing was the end of appliances in the centre as well.
There's still some stores worth going for. Dunnes, MacKays and Dorothy Perkins, as well as Peacocks and a couple of cheaper stores mean there's a surprisingly good range of women's clothes. The Boots could be bigger but is adequately stocks. The Co-op supermarket at the top is an OK grocery store and there's a decent Woolworths.
This place is trying hard, but it's clearly slowly dying a painful death.
There are virtually no anchor stores, and with the possible exception of Dunnes Stores nothing of note in the centre.
BB Muffins is ok for a coffee and a snack, but that's about it.
The recession has hit this centre hard, as can be seen from the number of pound shops and empty units.
I hope that there is a brighter future for this centre, but it will need a small miracle for that to happen.
The Kingdom Shopping Centre is right in the centre of Glenrothes providing the town with over 100 shops and also a large amount of free parking spaces. The centre is home to a wide range of shops, cafes and banks. It is adjacent to the Rothes halls and access to the halls can be gained directly from the shopping centre. The centre is open from 9 5.30 Monday to Saturday and from 12 till 4 on a Sunday, only closing on Christmas and New Years day. The shopping Centre has served Glenrothes for over 50 years now although some of the long standing stores have closed down over the past few years there are still more than enough shops to make it worth the journey for an afternoons shopping. One downside is that there are no large department stores such as m&s, of BHS here
Tacky run down mall badly in need of a makeover, mostly consisting of poundland shops and payday loan companies. Quality of food in the cafe ( if you can call it food) was simply appalling.
If you want to see a snapshot of the recession in the UK, come to this place , otherwise avoid like the plague. If there was an option to give this place a 0 then I would have.
