You can buy things in this shopping centre, not a lot but the necessities of life. Its also a place where you can experience the hearty culture of the area, especially when listening to the soulful accent.

There are some good bargins! Decent shops and something for everyone, there is a coffee shop in the centre too which is good to relax in mid-shop. Very clean. Toilet facilities available also.
