Northampton town centre is absolutely bursting with business – everything from gift shops and boutiques to big brands, antiques, and independently owned stores.

At the heart of the town centre is Grosvenor Shopping, our main shopping centre which covers two floors and is home to some of the biggest names in retail including Next, Primark, Boots, WH Smith, LUSH, New Look, Office, Pandora, Superdry and iStore. Alongside the big brands you will find a wealth of stores providing the latest fashion trends, toys and entertainment and everyday services such as dry cleaning and watch repairs. Look out for our seasonal pop up shops across the centre floor offering interesting and unique gifts and accessories.

Other retail gems are dotted throughout the town centre including national chains such as Waterstones, H&M, Argos, Clarks and River Island, not forgetting our great range of charity shops which can provide unique and one-off finds for the thrifty shopper.

We are extremely proud of our independent businesses which continue to grow and can be found nestled alongside many of the big brands across the town centre. A boutique shopping experience can be enjoyed with the delights of Berties, Voni Blu, 32 The Guild, and Clues Menswear while unique and quirky gifts can be discovered from the likes of Mooch and Vintage Guru (winner of the BID’s Christmas Windows Competition in 2018 and 2019) both located in our Cultural Quarter on the award-winning St Giles – winner of the Great British High Street competition in 2015.
