“new square..same old”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Have been a few times,it's clean and tidy,but some of the units are empty which does not help.The car park thing is ok once you get used to using it.
The shops are pretty much what you would expect from any 'major' high street,the usual chain stores etc.
You probably won't go there unless you live local,the Merry Hill centre it isn't.
The one plus point I found was the Primark, it is the tidiest I've been in.
For the people of West Bromwich it's something new,all they need to do now is fix the other 2 centres and the High St up and we might just have a vibrant town centre again.

“Car park puts u off”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013 via mobile

No they have closed the public it seems like you have to pay through the nose for a cup of tea or coffee at the costas disgraceful just when this place was coming alive I go and close the art gallery 2 steps forward 3 steps back typical sandwell rubbish the car park you need a degree in numbers and tescos is ridiculous to make you pay for the car park it should be free if they are going to rival the other shopping centres it's free on sunday so I not make it free every other day ridiculous

“Car park West Bromwich”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

Live and work in Sandwell and have used the car park at the new one square in west Bromwich.
They could have installed cameras like a lot of other supermarkets giving you a few hours of free car parking without having to shop in Tesco to get a free parking ticket.
Due to this all of my shopping is now done in Oldbury the cape hill shopping centre or Merry hill all with No ticket machines and free parking for lots of shops ,if I want to shop at Tesco we have one at Dudley on the way back from merry Hill a second at spring hill and one in the Smethwick shopping centre off the high street.
I say vote with your feet and shop else where until they remove the ticket machines.
