"Calling all bargain hunters!" Top 5 Page for this destination Boundary Mill Shiremoor Tip by toonsarah

Boundary Mill Shiremoor is one of a small UK chain of discount stores and is a great place to hunt for bargains, especially in sale time! Their claim is that they are "the largest quality mill store of its kind in the UK. Founded in 1983, our philosophy is to offer our customers quality branded goods at discount prices up to 75% off rrp."

There is a huge car park here and as it's well out of town that's the best way to travel - not least because you may need a car to carry all your bargains home! There's also a cafe but I've never had anything there though my mother in law says the coffee is reasonable (quality and price). Apparently free croissants and coffee are served between 10.00 - 11.00 AM on a Sunday, when the shop is open for browsing only until trading can begin at 11.00.


What to buy: Goods on offer include ladies' and men's clothing and household goods. Lots of big names are featured such as Jaegar, Hobbs, Kaliko, Eastex, Alexon, Planet, French Connection, etc. etc. You need to allow plenty of time to shop around for the best bargains but there are plenty to be had. The best deals are on the dearer products such as coats and suits, and in the household department where good quality china and glass can be bought for well under the high street price.

What to pay: Much less than elsewhere! On a recent trip there I bought a Jaegar cotton and cashmere jumper, recommended retail price 99, for just 22, and an Alex and Co cotton top, recommended retail price 35, for 17. On the same visit my mum in law picked up an Alexon jacket reduced from 200 to 58, while Chris got a jumper reduced from 35 to 19. Past visits have yielded a Hobbs linen jacket at less than half the high street price for me, and an Eastex trouser suit, similarly discounted, for mum in law.

Address: Park Lane, Shiremoor, NE27 0BS
Directions: Drive east on the A191 (known locally as the Old Coast Road) and after crossing the A19 turn left on Park Lane, signposted Shiremoor. The store is visible on your right. You could also walk from Shiremoor Metro station though it's quite a way.
