Flying Tiger



With a great choice of stores packed with everything from uniform essentials to the latest must-have lunch boxes, stationery and accessories, Shrewsbury Shopping is the perfect place to kit them out with all they need to start the new term in style.


There must be something in the summer air that makes them shoot up over the six week break, because none of last year’s uniform ever seems to fit… Head to M&S, Next and Clarks to update their school wardrobe and shoe-drobe with plenty of room to grow into the new term.

Flying Tiger, Claire’s and Smiggle are on hand with all the latest novelty accessories from pencil cases, pens and erasers to hair accessories and more, while WH Smith and Ryman are stocked with the serious stuff, like maths sets, binders and planners to ensure they sail through class.

Welcome to Darwin’s Den!

Shopping with the little ones can be a challenge at times – for all parties concerned. So we’ve got a little treat to keep you all sweet.

Our brand new, FREE indoor play facility in partnership with Little Rascals and Shrewsbury Town In The Community Charity is now open! 

You’ll find Darwin’s Den on the middle level of the Darwin Centre, to give you all a little respite on your shopping trip and allow the little ones to let off some pent-up steam with a variety of bespoke play equipment. 

Green Options Now Open!

We’re thrilled to announce the opening of a brand new zero-waste shop at the Darwin Centre. Discover a wide range of single-use-plastic-free foods and household products in this eco-conscious store.

Dedicated environmentalists, Sam and Lillie from Green Options, aim to address the worryingly high usage of single-use plastic in Britain through stores such as theirs, which banish over-used single-use plastics such as film, packaging and bags. 

Selling a range of zero-waste items – from toiletries to lifestyle products, Green Options is an exciting addition to Shrewsbury’s shopping scene, having been introduced to the Centres by the Shropshire Youth Support Trust who have been supporting their start-up.

After spending a year working on organic farms, living almost plastic-free lives, Green Options’ owners Sam and Lillie began to think about setting up a waste-free shop. Having left the organic farms, they were struck by how challenging it was to do a plastic-free weekly shop in Shropshire.

Using alternatives to plastic packaging, and with refill options on offer, Green Options is resourceful and eco-conscious, encouraging customers to rethink their plastic shopping habits.
