02 Jul Celebrating Independents Week
Cross Keys Arcade was established over 25 years ago in the heart of Salisbury off Guildhall Square and retains original features which are Grade II listed such as a Jacobean staircase. The Arcade includes a combination of leading UK high street brands and local independent retailers, and is the only covered shopping centre in Salisbury. The diverse mix of occupiers attracts a diverse range of people, and no one independent shop is the same.
The independents range from high-end art gallery, Gallery 21, which ranks amongst the best in the country, to modern ethical retailer Goodfayre. Well Natural on the outside of the arcade serves Salisbury’s body conscious market whilst Vinyl Collectors & Sellers is the only dedicated vinyl record shop in Salisbury and attracts customers from far and wide. Fashion retailers include Richmond Classics and Cool! Merchandise, whilst bespoke perfumes and soaps are available from Scent & Colour.
Robert Brown, Marketing Manager for Cross Keys said, “Cross Keys has almost certainly become the go-to destination for independents in Salisbury. We believe that uniqueness and variety, both in terms of occupiers and our architectural mix, is what keeps drawing shoppers to Cross Keys. It’s important that we give Salisbury what it wants – a vibrant shopping experience – and we have worked hard to attract a wide and varied range of independents to call Cross Keys their home.”
