Celebrating Salisbury Independent Retailers Week

Cross Keys Arcade offers a wonderful selection of boutique niche independent shops and restaurants positioned in the heart of Salisbury, facing onto the Guildhall Square, many of which are joining in with Salisbury Independent’s Week.

Cross Keys is a unique shopping space by its very nature and this naturally attracts eclectic and varied operators. It is the only covered shopping area in Salisbury and boasts some fantastic historic listed features, including a Jacobean Staircase.

Cross Keys offers something for everyone, with some truly exciting independents, including Gallery 21, an exceptional high-end art gallery that ranks amongst the best in the country.  Goodfayre opened its doors last year as an ethical retail offering, catching the real demand for ethically sourced products, and they trade exceptionally well alongside Well Natural, located on the outside of the Arcade, who provide a range of Organic, Natural and Wholefood products. Vinyl Collectors and Sellers are Salisbury city’s only vinyl record shop and have tapped into a market that many people thought had disappeared, whilst Cool! Retail has created an offering that many may not have known that there was a demand for.  Two of the newest tenants are Feel Good Skate Co and Scent & Colour, whose success since opening has proven that Cross Keys is the perfect place for destination retailers who service a clear niche market.  Alongside these newer tenants, we have long standing retailers such as the Cross Keys Café and Richmond Classics, who have served many a happy returning customer for decades.

It’s important that Landlords 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. Cool! Retail, Goodfayre and Vinyl Collectors & Sellers all started out as pop up shops and grew so popular that they now have long term leases.

Robert Brown, Marketing Manager for Cross Keys Arcade said, “Independent retailers bring a special vibrancy to a shopping space and we wholeheartedly embrace that at Cross Keys.  We believe that uniqueness and variety is what keeps drawing shoppers to Cross Keys.”
