There are over 90 high-street and designer brands with up to 60% off and unbeatable discounts all year round.

It is okay. could do with a little more variety in the type of shops. Some shops quite expensive but others are fine.Fast food court is fine for families but more choice of restaurants would be good. Cinema quite handy. Gets quite busy.
