    Out of city shopping centers are there to often larger stores closer together. Sometimes you get a wider choice etc.

    Ugh the Trafford Centre. It’s basically all the chain shops in Manchester city centre (devoid of all the cool independent ones) crammed into one indoor area that is difficult to reach unless you either a) live in Trafford or b) can drive. I know you can take a tram and a shuttle bus, but I cannot be bothered, especially when it only takes me 5 minutes to get into the city centre. Plus, compared to town a larger proportion of children seem to go there, possibly because it’s more ‘family orientated’. Ugh families...

    My German uncle went there a few months ago and kept telling his wife how ‘The Trafford centre is like Las Vegas.’ It’s certainly got the tackiness of Vegas (Egyptian themed ice cream dispensers!?), just without the fun (gambling).

    Apologies for going off on one. :o:

    The trafford is getting tacky now, half the centre is shut anyway, cos there is empty shops apparently some more as well, because certain stores are losing money plus rent being higher... Manchester has all the shops that trafford has, plus more designer ones, and independant ones. it is alot better to shop in the city centre.

    The advantage of a shopping mall is that its all in the same place. I prefer to go out in manchester then tc, but tc is more convenient especially for evenings. I dont think its got any shops that manchester city centre doesnt have.

    In sheffield, im pretty sure meadowhall has more to offer than sheffield city centre.

    MedowHELL does have more to offer, but I find it hopelessly boring!!

    I don't mind smaller places like York designer outlet though!

    I do get most of my clothes from medowhall because it is only a train ride away for me.
