I used to shop here for hours but since they removed the benches I only stay to get what I need and then leave. I get severe back ache and I need to sit down periodically.

I've never really taken to the hard shoulder sorry shaw centre, its prehistoric, bland and filled with nothing but discount shops and 1 newsagent. The economic meltdown has really hit this town badly and its virtually struggling to get up on its feet again. We...More

Have no idea why other reviews so negative. It is an arcade with mainly discount shops but with an Argos, TJ Hughes & an M&S too. Suits its purpose not everything needs a makeover. If it ain't broke etc.

Lots of closed shops (even the pound shop has left) and unfortunately, no public seating, plus point very clean aisles with a cleaner always around.

The hardshaw centre needs some TLC! Very few 'fab' shops and lots of discount shops so if your looking for a bargain you'll probably find one. The centre needs some wow factor to brighten the place up!

This place hasn't been refurbished since I was a kid circa 1980 it's truly an embarrassing sight. These are supposed to be prime shop units in a prime location. We have got basically what amounts to a corner shop in one, 2 pound shops and...More

This place hasn't changed in over 30 years. It's old, tired and in serious need of a re-brand. There are units-to-let everywhere, since TJ Hughes closed over 10 years ago, nobody has moved in to fill the space. This place is simply a waiting room...More
