The growth of Wrexham over the past 2 years has turned this market focussed town into north Wales' biggest retail centre with many national retailers wanting a slice of the action. In the past, Wrexham has been heavily criticised for it's abundance of 'cheap' shops. Today there are still a small number of these shops within the town, although now they serve to compliment the big name stores offering a good degree of choice and competition.
Wrexham still has 3 covered markets including a butcher's market which offers shoppers freshness and value for money. Regular visits by the travelling French and German outdoor markets are extremely popular especially as you can buy a slightly more exotic range of continental produce at Queens Square.
Work has already started on two new retail parks within a few minutes walk of the centre and these have both attracted fantastic investment and led to much needed area renovation - basically removing the undeveloped eyesores from the town. Plans have also been approved for a massive retail and leisure complex near the town centre and this will definitely be the icing on the cake making Wrexham a great shopping experience. This will also help to bring people back to the High Street area of the town which now has more pubs than shops.
