Two floors of independent shops
Located behind St Mary’s Church, it is just a couple of minutes walk from Pride Hill. Step inside to discover two floors of interesting and alluring stores, a world away from the usual high street shops.
Philip Freeman, proprietor of The Parade Shops, comments on the offering, “Scour the shelves of Second Chapter Books for a first edition, marvel over handmade jewellery in Beadles, select your new laptop or gaming PC in Salop Technology, or be transported across continents with the ethically sourced, hand-tailored silk garments in Kashmir and Silk. There are oodles of amazing products on sale at The Parade.
“Individual, independent and irresistible are three ways to describe this collection of businesses offering their wares. It provides a unique shopping experience with fashion, arts, crafts and specialist services, as well as a café overlooking the river, health and beauty salons and a pottery-painting studio.
“Support what Shrewsbury has to offer with a visit to The Parade Shops this December, and find gifts for loved ones that you can’t find anywhere else.”
