Apr 9, 2021
Swansea city centre is re-opening on April 12 and we are looking forward to welcoming you back to enjoy our wonderful independent stores, big-name retailers and all the other great experiences the city centre has to offer.
Among the large retailers re-opening on April 12 is Primark, New Look, Lush, Next, H&M and many more. You will also find that the ‘essential items only’ rule has been dropped from the stores that have continued to serve shoppers remained open during lockdown.
Supporting local businesses has never been more important, so if you are taking a trip to the city centre, be sure to revisit our independents too. Jigso-Cymru, Attica, Hobo’s Swansea, Spencer Morgan Jewellers, Teddy Mountain, Valley Mill, Moda Collections, Moustache, The Gamers’ Emporium and others are all looking forward to welcoming you back.
In our True Heart of Swansea feature, we introduce you to some of the people behind these vital businesses. If you want to learn about the faces behind some of the city centre’s most beloved brands, check it out here.
You will also find your favourite names inside The Quadrant Shopping Centre. Pandora, The Body Shop, The Works, HMV, Boots, The Disney Store, The Fragrance Shop, The Perfume Shop and SaltRock are just a few of the shops re-opening in Swansea’s indoor shopping mall.
Swansea Market has remained open for essential shopping throughout lockdown, but it will now re-open the majority of its stalls. If you have an upcoming birthday that you need a gift for, or perhaps you need a new pair of dancing shoes ready for when we’re able to hit Wind Street again, take a look inside Swansea’s treasured market hall.
As well as old favourites, you will notice some exciting new kids on the block when you return. Mazza Treatz has taken Swansea by storm during lockdown, selling a range of iconic goodies that you can’t get in the supermarket. You’ll find sweets, crisps, chocolate and snacks from all over the world, including Australian TimTams, Galaxy Orange, Takis Blue Heat crisps and much more in the store on High Street.
You will also find two new Mexican-themed eateries. Pinatas Burrito Bar has gained a huge online following over the last couple of months with its Dorito Burritos, frozen margaritas and other nacho and taco takeaway delights. Taco Bell also opened up on Oxford Street during lockdown, offering click and collect on its famous Mexican-themed menu.
So not only can you enjoy a spot of retail therapy, but you can also top off your day with a takeaway coffee or lunch from our eateries, restaurants and cafes too.
