Speaking as a South West Sheffield resident, who actually needs the city centre? If say Curryís didnít have a South West presence, there is always Chesterfield, the likes of John Lewis need to seriously consider their position, or they could find themselves being the last man standing.

Was in the Costa this morning. It was extremely busy with long queues. I can see it being permanently like that. Spotted quite a few faults with the building - side entrance door difficult to open, yet blows fully open with the wind and then doesn't close. Furniture fixings poorly installed with brackets not being straight etc. Surprising really as Costa probably have the same contractors to build and fit all their shops so surprised things like this don't get noticed when handing the building over.

Car park extremely busy, despite only a few shops being open. Looked like it was the opening day for the TKMax Home store going by the queue and handing out of balloons etc.

Aldi, Wilko's and M&S will be useful for me, with it being a 5 min walk from where I live. And of course Greggs bacon butties for breakfast.

Yes, only 6 if the list in the post above is correct...and the "big boys" are still to arrive on site.
Is the car park one of those "timed" jobs? Two hours maximum, and the like?

Yes can see this being a big success especially when you consider these parks usually take months or even years to establish themselves.

No, Apparently their store devices require a 4G signal, but they can only get a 3G signal, so thats why its not open yet.

Just as a headsup - I reckon visiting the new place around 3pm today would be a good move

I was near there on Wednesday, mid morning. The car park looked full. Seeing as some stores havenít opened yet, it may get busier still. Some of this will be people trying it for the first time, as itís new, but if it carries on like this, then the car park looks small.

The car park at the sports and health place next door already gets full and itís necessary to use the temporary/undeveloped/overspill ones behind.

If things carry on like this, the turnover could be limited by car park size.

I havenít checked, but Iíd be surprised if there isnít any parking control, otherwise it might become an unofficial park and ride base.

There is a 3 hour maximum limit in operation for parking.

I live very close to the new retail park, but apart from Wilkos and the card factory can't see me being a regular visitor.

The graffiti yobs have already started on the new shopping centre. Why when you have a new shopping centre which is actually quite attractive would you want to make it look a mess. Really are lower life forms.

Because they don't want people to have something nice, I'm sure they wouldn't want people spraying their property.

Well look at the area it's located in, hardly unexpected been wedged between druggies on one side, and murderers on the other side...
