Shopping at Yate is so easy and convenient
Located in the heart of the South Gloucestershire town, Yate Shopping Centre is an outdoor mall with over one hundred retailers that range from famous high street names such as Tesco Extra, M&S Simply Food, Sports Direct,Peacocks, Next, TK Maxx, Costa Coffee, New Look, M&Co and Argos, to locally renowned independent stores such as ironmonger Meredith’s and Jeweller Abrahams.

A strong community shopping complex, Yate Shopping Centre holds a varied events programme throughout the year that has included a local talent contest, childrens attractions, Christmas events and celebrity visits including Peter Andre, Steps and X Factor finalists.

Construction of Yate Shopping Centre began in the 60’s with the mall being opened officially by famous face of the day Patricia Phoenix (who played Elsie Tanner in Coronation Street). The centre has grown and developed ever since into a popular, bustling shopping destination for both local and regional customers.

Yate Shopping Centre has seen many developments and changes over the years. In the 90’s glass canopies were installed along the mall, giving the centre a greater standing as an all weather shopping complex. In the 80’s East Walk was developed for the construction of a new Tesco store. Recently, this store has seen a significant investment and has been transformed into a Tesco Extra with110,000 sq ft of retail space, an enhanced customer provision and 24 hour trading.

Within walking distance of the centre, there is also a Jobcentre Plus, Citizens Advice Bureau, Library, Leisure Centre as well as the new youth cafe, the Armadillo. The £12 million West Gate Health Centre was opened in 2010 after construction began in 2008.

During 2012 four retail units were transformed in to a new JD Wetherspoon named Thorn’s Farm, providing an alternative eating and social expereience.

The future of Yate Shopping Centre is looking bright too. The building of four new units at the centre has seen M&S and Sports Direct open at Yate Shopping Centre in 2013. The Yate Riverside retail and leisure scheme opened from December 2015 with an exciting mix of retailers, restuarants and a six screen Cineworld. Operators at Yate Riverside include Pets At Home, Next, TK Maxx, Frankie & Bennys, Nandos and Cineworld.
Yate Shopping Centre has seen a number of new retailers and eateries open during 2017 including Pandora, The Entertainer Toy Shop, Bolero Lounge, Papa John’s Pizza, Julian Charles and The Bay Tree Gift Shop.
