The Grand Junction Retail Park is located just east of Crewe town centre. It opened in the mid-90s on the site of the old Crewe Kings speedway stadium.
It is a pretty large shopping park with a good range of stores. At the time of writing (March 2015) shops here include Aldi, Bathstore, Boots, Brantano, Carpetright, Currys PC World, Halfords, Harveys, Hobbycraft, Home Bargains, Laura Ashley, Maplin, M&S Simply Food, Next, Pets at Home, Poundstretcher, Poundworld, Sofaworks, Sports Direct, and TK Maxx.
Places to eat and drink are KFC, Frankie & Benny’s, and Costa. Bella Italia, Chiquito, and Nando’s are set to open restaurants here in summer 2015.
Focus DIY closed in 2010 was replaced by TK Maxx Store, Costa, and Boots. Rosebys closed in 2008, followed by Allied Carpets in 2009. Comet went into administration at the end of 2012 while CSL rebranded as Sofaworks in 2013.
Opening times vary by store, but all are open seven days a week generally from 9 am to 8 pm on weekdays, 9 am to 6 pm on Saturdays, and 11 am to 5 pm on Sundays. Check with individual store websites to confirm specific opening hours before travelling.
The park offers free customer car parking for around 800 vehicles. As can be seen in the comments below, parking regulations here appear to be strictly enforced. Crewe Train Station is just over ½ mile away.
