Cirencester has a mix of shops that should cater for most people's needs.
The main shopping area centres around the Market Place (recently rennovated to include a "shared space" for use by the town's market, the Cirencester Advent Festival and other such events), Dyer Street, Cricklade Street and Castle Street. There is also a small covered shopping area called Bishops Walk and The Woolmarket off Dyer Street has lots of little shops to explore.
The Black Jack Street area has become a 'must visit' area with loads of 'nooks and crannies' to explore. And the re-development of the back of the Post Office area has brought further outlets to this area such as Soushi, Joli Beau, Pashon. Encore has also opened recently and Lord, the "upscale full-service Barber Shop" for boys and men, has become a mainstay of this retail area.
Cirencester shoppers have a number of town centre car parks to choose from, all of which operate a pay and display system.
These include the Abbey Grounds car park and The Waterloo.
There are a limited number of on-street car parking spaces dotted around the town centre, notably in Cricklade Street and Dyer Street.
Womenswear is particularly well represented with many independent stores in the town (such as Jungle and Plum) together with established chains such as Seasalt, Dorothy Perkins and Sahara.
House of Fraser (previously Rackhams), in the Market Place, prides itself on being Cirencester's one and only department store.
Boots, Goldsmiths, New Wave Fish Shop and the West Cornwall Pasty Co. are further examples of the type of store to be found in the town.
Cirencester doesn't have a Currys, PC World or other large electrical retailer, but a range of electrical goods can be purchased from the catalogue shop Argos which has a presence in Dyer Street as does homeshop Gardiner Haskins. The camera shop Concord Foto is located in Castle Street.
Scattered around the town you will find the major banks and building societies such as Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, Nationwide, Nat West, Santander and TSB.
The Cirencester Charter Market can be found in the Market Place every Friday.
On the outskirts of Cirencester you can find Dobbies Garden Centre and Tesco as well as a small retail park near the Love Lane area of the town.
