Fleet Walk and The Pavilion
FLEET Walk shopping centre is packed with interesting independent stores and national chains. “It is a hidden treasure and people don’t realise it, a part of Torquay that is going unnoticed,” says Manager Val Sanders.
“We can offer a different type of experience here at Fleet Walk as opposed to some of the other areas,” she continued. “As a centre we really want to promote our individuality and high level of personal service.”
“The mix of shops you get now is catering for all types of people,” said John Seymour, Deputy Manager.
“Right on our doorstep is the harbour and all its amenities next to our pedestrian shopping centre. You can have a really pleasant day shopping,” Val added.
You may want to visit the award winning gift shop, which also sells indoor and decorative wrought iron garden furniture, lighting and bric a brac. There are two other furniture and soft furnishings shops which are complemented by a specialist candle shop, whose exquisite candles include an aromatherapy range.
All age ranges, prices and styles for both men and women are covered by the various fashion shops, which include independents and chains, and you can buy shoes at prices ranging from cheap fashion models to top quality Continental leather designer styles, and the ever popular trainers and sports and surfing wear. When you add in the famous national designer discount chain, you have a total shopping experience. “It is an eclectic mix,” said Val.
Try our house wares shop, which must be the cheapest in town, or if you are stuck for an idea for a present, pick up a wooden toy, a matchbox car or an ethnic import style of gift. You could do your entire shop here.
Hungry and thirsty from all the shopping? Grab a fresh juice at the juice bar, tuck into a pizza or relax in an outdoor cafe. An added bonus is the parking. The Fleet Walk car park is part of the complex and is not owned by the council. There is no restriction on how long you can park, and you pay only for the hours you have stayed. It is fully equipped with brand new WCs, disabled facilities and lifts. The centre was built in 1989 when it was opened by the Princess Royal. Its elegant upper boulevard contains all the classic upmarket shops you would expect, but the prices are extremely reasonable. You don’t need to spend a fortune in Fleet Walk to buy quality and original goods says John. “It is just waiting to be discovered,” said Val, “so don’t leave it too long.”
