Prescot has two main shopping areas, The Town Centre and Cables Retail Park. The Town Centre offers a traditional high street experience with a wide variety of local providers offering bespoke goods and services. Many of the shops have recently benefited from Heritage Lottery Funding which as helped to return frontages back to a time before steel shutters were introduced and has provided an improved aesthetic through continuity. The shopping experience ranges from high street names such as Boots and Home Bargains to independent boutiques, including fashions, jewellery, hair styling, award wining butchers and furniture. We also have a regular producers’ market (9am to 2pm, first Saturday of each month), offering crafts, fresh produce, deli, baked goods, and more.
At the heart of the historic town is Prescot Shopping Centre, accessible from Eccleston Street for pedestrians or Aspinall Street for cars and other vehicles (free parking). Stores in the mall include Showering’s butchers, Farmfoods, Card Factory, the Post Office and Home Bargains.
