Retail World is a place I go often enough because there’s a Starbucks in the Next store, a Halfords for bikes and equipment, TK Maxx (same as TJ Maxx we have in the US), and a Boots pharmacy. Plus, they have a McDonald’s which is handy for grabbing a chicken sandwich on my way home from shopping.
Retail World is a retail park of regional significance and is situated immediately adjacent to the A1 motorway, three miles south of Newcastle. The park was refurbished in 2002/3 to provide re-clad elevations and new entrance features. Recent new retailers to the park include Next, Boots, Arcadia, Borders and Hobbycraft.
