The Shires

The Shires is a shopping centre in Leicester, England. It was opened in 1991, to supplement the ageing and run-down Haymarket centre, and was built on a very central city centre site on Eastgates and High Street. Frontages of buildings that were demolished were retained, and new external construction was in a mock-olde style.

The corner of the Shires

An extension opened in 1994, with a frontage onto Church Gate, and another extension is currently planned, which will nearly double the retail space available.
