Oldham has seen a lot of city centre re-development, and the area is now home to two large shopping centres: The Spindles and Town Square. These centres represent one of the largest undercover retail destinations in the whole of Greater Manchester, with the Early Learning Centre and the Disney Store being among the occupiers.
If you're prepared to look a little further afield though, you will find that Oldham has some particularly interesting independent toy shops, such as Countryside Kids in Court Street. The Railway Station in Market Place is the perfect name for a model railway store and attracts a wide age range of keen modellers for this fascinating hobby. Construction kits, paints, glues and all sorts of model making accessoies can be purchased at Arcadia Models in Rochdale Road.
