The New 'Robin Retail Park"
Click on the picture to see the larger version

Robin Retail Park at Newtown is on the site of what used to be the Robin Park Athletics stadium.

Retailers on the site include Sports Division(now owned by Dave Whelan), Comet, Boots, Matalan, Poundstretcher, Wickes, Pets at Home & Bensons Beds.



There is ample car parking although these pictures were taken on a Sunday evening and it isn't usually this empty!



Many town centre shopkeepers objected to this site being developed but it doesn't seem to have affected trade in the town centre too much.



The new Asda Hypermarket was opened in September 97 and is now open 24 hours a day from 8am on Monday morning through to 8pm on Saturday night.



This view was taken from the Saddle junction which is now always very busy and is a nightmare to negotiate at peak times of the day.
