Social distancing who?
Oct 2020 • Solo
Shops were decent, but there was barely any social distancing. This was in October 2020, at the height of the pandemic and weeks before Stirling had to go into lockdown again. People were shoving past each other, didn't bother to put any distance between themselves and strangers, and there were definitely quite a few people not wearing masks.

Really bright clean shopping centre with good shops
Jun 2021
It was nice to find a shopping centre where all of the shops are still open. There are lots of high street shops and the centre itself is very clean and well maintained. I was impressed by the cleanliness of the toilets and everything looked very new. I asked a couple of the male security staff on the door for information about finding somewhere and they were really helpful, one of them even looked up the address of the place I was looking for to give me directions, they were just so polite and professional, a credit to their employers. I went into the centre a couple of times whilst we were staying in Stirling and it was a thoroughly pleasant experience.

Great shopping centre - please avoid the Sainsbury's Thistle Centre Stirling if you're a tourist.
Jun 2021
Great shopping centre, very central. Nice to be out after lockdown and was a pity that I didn't have more time to go shopping.

Surprised that such a lot of shops can fit into a historic town.

Unfortunately would recommend not going to the Sainsbury's Stirling shop in Thistle Centre if you are a visitor or foreign tourist or a bit "nervous"

Although it's a big company, there's an atmosphere of "locals and students only" and I found it was very unwelcoming - staff chatting about customers behind their back? Maybe it's Ok if you're local and very confident or in a big group!

But plenty of other great independent shops.

Lovely shopping centre
Aug 2020 • Solo
Right in the heart of Stirling City Centre, the mall has a big variety of retail outlets including major retail brands. Lots of cafe/restaurants and public houses. All inside so does not matter what the weather is.

Very clean and well maintained. A pay and display car park very close with an enclosed walkway.

Shop Safely!
Oct 2020
I was in Stirling for a short while so decided to visit the Thistles Shopping Centre. It is right next to the Bus Station and only a couple of minutes from the railway station.

Entering the shopping centre I was very impressed at how well managed the social distancing was. The centre has very broad walkways so it was easy to implement a two way system and people on the whole seemed to be sticking to the rules.

There are quite a few shops in the centre and some big chain stores. The majority of the shops seemed to be open which is a good sign.

Would come again next time I am in the area.
