Cirencester has a mix of shops that should cater for most people's needs.
The main shopping area centres around the Market Place, Dyer Street, Cricklade Street and Castle Street. There is also a small covered shopping area called Bishops Walk.
Currys, the largest specialist electrical retailer in the town, closed back in 2006 but a range of electrical goods can be purchased from the catalogue shop Argos which has a presence in Dyer Street. Jessops, the town's biggest camera retailer, closed on Friday 11th January 2013 after the company went into administration on 9th January. This leaves Concord Foto on Castle Street as the remaining camera shop in Cirencester.
Womenswear is particularly well represented with many independent stores in the town together with established chains such as Dorothy Perkins and Country Casuals. Next closed its shop in October 2009 and the premises is now occupied by a coffee shop.
Lock Stock and Barrel in the Market Place is among the shops selling 'nik naks', while House of Fraser (previously Rackhams), also in the Market Place, prides itself on being Cirencester's one and only department store.
The Black Jack Street area is fast becoming a 'must visit' area with loads of 'nooks and crannies' to explore. And the re-development of the back of the Post Office area has brought further outlets to this area such as Pulp and Soushi.
You will also find the major banks and building societies such as Barclays, HSBC, Nationwide, Nat West and Santander.
The Cirencester Charter Market can be found in the Market Place every Monday and Friday.
On the outskirts of Cirencester you can find Dobbies Garden Centre and Tesco.
