There is a good passing trade as the High Street is the main shopping thoroughfare with local traffic and footfall throughout the day. The High Street is pedestrianized with ample car parking in neighboring streets.

The site enjoys excellent passing trade generated by the number of residential dwellings in the area, local business and the Bus Station. Surrounding occupiers include Clydesdale Bank, Superdrug, Optical Express, William Hill, Poundland, Iceland and New Look along with other local retailers.
