  • Moved away from Skelmersdale 2 years ago and sad to say that the Concourse has not improved since I left - if anything it is worse than I remember! When I first moved to Skelmersdale in the late 80's ...  more »
  • Had such a great time trawling the shops spending my dole. Took me all of a minute but was the 60s of my life. Will do it again when my jigger comes through.  more »
  • It's a complete dive. The place should be pulled down & started again. The supermarkets such as Aldi, farm foods, Iceland are reasonably well stocked. Wilkinsons, the £1 shops & Home & Bargains are ok...  more »

  • Stuck in the 1970's and more empty shops than open, poor selection of shops. Staff in the stores are always helpful. Its about time the management looked beyond their noses and come up with a real plan to bring the place back to life and not just talk! This could be a great town centre but the management/owners seem to just want it to run down and blame others or wait for grants! I would invite them to talk to me if they want my constructive thoughts, this is not rocket science but simple basic marketing and asset management.
  • It could do with maybe a primark as although there are a couple of clothes shops there's little for children. It's pretty accessible and there are some decent discount stores too. The chip shop outside is excellent. I'd visit again.
  • Ample free parking, good range of budget shops. Good value and easy for quick shopping trips.
  • This place has stood the test of time which is saying things for a town center these days. It has pretty much everything you need. Hairdressers, NHS walk in center, Estate Agent, KFC, Farm Foods. The kiddies pirate ship is a brilliant touch and my little girl loves it. I even had to point out it's new location to a very disgruntled little girl and her mother, who were quite grateful i notified them. I have heard good things are coming to the Concourse. Restaurants and a cinema. Watch this space.
  • Good selection of empty shops. The short stay car park is tricky to navigate and the Subway sandwich shop had run out of nearly everything when we used it.
