  • Been to the Fort a few times now, having it really local to me.Nice shops and places to eat.. And free parking which is a plus 
  • The shops seem to get smaller and have little to offer. Most things you can get in Sutton Coldfield or go into Birmingham Free parking and never over busy Bit old fashioned with lower end brands 
  • When the Fort first opened many years ago it had a small number of shops but all were huge units. Over the years most of the big units were split and there were more shops but they were smaller. This ...  read more »
  • The toilets are way better than those at the bull ring and not as overcrowded even though a few taps are out of use. Free parking is also something which I don't think anyone will ever complain about considering how much it is elsewhere but it can get very busy at times so getting in and out can prove to be a real struggle, especially since a particular cheap retailer has just moved in. I can see why so many people prefer to come here to avoid the city centre but the shops are much smaller here with little variety apart from the likes of Moss Menswear which is an exception as it's the biggest in Brum and unfortunately you do tend to get quite a few undesirables here too in terms of behaviour and attitude.
  • New big Primark, wgich is tidy, and well organised, comparing to the one in town. Big Boots close by. The only thing I miss there now is M&S, which closed down few months ago.
  • The Fort used to be a fantastic place to shop and grab a bite to eat; used to be. Lately it's become a crowded nightmare, cars park wherever they please and drive the wrong way up and down the one way only lanes, all without consequence. I've witnessed numerous incidents of people getting into altercations whilst security was no where to be seen - I was nearly run off the road and verbally threatened because I wouldn't give way to someone driving through the No Entry signs towards me. Security didn't seem bothered. It's a shame that a once great retail park has become a hub for the dregs of society, it'll be another One Stop shopping centre soon enough.
  • Nice place to shop with lots of high street brands. Free parking that's helpful. After hours of shoppings, plenty of options to eat too
  • Really good out of city shopping centre with recognised high street stores and an ever expanding food/drink area. Recent additions include Frankie & Benny's and a harvester. The Fort is a good place to go if you don't fancy the city centre
