For a town of its size, Eye has an impressive array of shops. Ranging from everyday amenities to specialist retailers, Eye not only provides everything residents might need on a day-to day basis, but also offers goods and services less frequently demanded. Barclays bank (cash-point only), two Cooperative supermarkets, a Post Office in McCall’s, two butchers’, a local bakery, a hardware shop, several hairdressers and a chemist are just a few of the services and shops the town has to offer. You can see the full list in our Business Directory.
Eye is particularly well-served with antique, home furnishing and gift shops, not to mention a haberdashery, popular second-hand women’s clothing boutique and a chocolatier (complete with café).
If you need a break from shopping, there are several places to eat, whether you’re looking for a light lunch, some pub grub, a tea and cake or even a convenient takeaway.
Additionally, there is an award-winning, weekly ‘Country Market’ in the Town Hall (Wednesday) where fresh, seasonal produce and locally home-made cakes, quiches and preserves are available. (So popular is this weekly event, that sometimes everything is sold out within less than 15 minutes!)
Technically a ‘market town’, Eye lives up to it’s name on Friday mornings when stalls appear, selling Fresh fish from Lowestoft, fresh fruit, vegetables and seasonal produce.
With all of these local amenities within walking distance of each other and most of the houses in the town centre, it’s easy to see why people choose to shop locally.
So why not visit Eye with plenty of FREE parking, you can sample what our shopping scene has to offer?
