The only place I ever go shopping is Trago Mills, you can park free right outside and stay as long as you like, it has several nice eating places, a steam railway - best value in the country, a large motoring and tools dept, a fantastic garden centre and they sell practically everything else you could ever want and at the best prices anywhere. Takes less than an hour from here, mostly on dual carriageway and what you save at the pumps filling your car up pretty wells pays for your journey. I also get my oil there at about £12 for 5 L.
Its also got numerous things for kids to do and probably covers a couple of hundred acres, all sorts of wildlife including peacocks wandering about free. You could easily spend a day there. We make a list and go about once a month. Its in the top ten businesses in the country for turnover. End of commercial.
Any other shops I'm with you Jim.
