Focus on retail

Swindon has a great mix of high street names in the town centre; boutiques and specialist retailers in Old Town; along with one of Europe's most successful designer outlet centres. This campaign puts special focus on Retail.

Swindon town centre has a retail catchment of over half a million people including parts of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire, and takes £545 million in retail spending each year; an increase of nearly 30% since 2008. Prime retail rents of £120 per square foot in Swindon are nearly half our competitors and Venuescore ranks Swindon town centre as the 5th most significant shopping destination in the sub region.

A host of large town centre businesses keep daytime population high and footfall figures are 22.8 million every year; 2.1 million per month and 305,000 per week.
