“Shopping Experience”

A day out in Poole to do some Chirstmas shopping, a good variety of shops and some independent outlets that sell "different" things, Plenty of food outlets at fair prices. Lovely Christmas decorations.

“Just another mall.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2013

It has been open for a few year and is not wearing well. As with so may of these places it has become a place for the young to congregate, not helped by the bus terminus alongside. KFC is the fast food place eat, but there are also a couple of self-service eateries. There is also a Chinese buffet, but once you have been there a couple of times you never need to go back again. Shops are not wonderful. Beales (the local department store) and M&S predominate, then there is Boots and a number of smaller establishments.
