Before I start this is not the Trafford Centre, Liverpool One or even Wigan town centre. However it houses all that one needs for basics and discount shopping. With Aldi, Home Bargains AND Wilkinsons, undercover and open 7 days a week. Ideal. There's a market where you can get a decent mug of tea and plenty of other shops. These... More

The passing of time has not been kind to the Concourse. Once home to many different types of stores, it is now being propped up by an Argos, Wilkos and Home Bargain. To be fair, the Iceland is quite large, and certainly somewhere to visit if you enjoy having people slamming their trolley into your back (Seriously, I'm 6'1 and... More

I went to Superdrug today at 13.40 to have my eyebrows threaded. Been before and she does a good job. However, today the cashier said 'sorry she's not taking anymore she wants her lunch' what kind of business is that! Travelled from Burscough. I certainly won't go there again. I appreciate you have to eat but get short breaks ..... More

I have been going to the concourse so he I was a small child but I must say over the years they seem to be losing more and more shops the place is clean enough with great access for public transport the bus station is attached to it overall a good enough place to shop

Thank HEXD C
