Town centres

The four market towns of Amber Valley -  Alfreton, Belper, Ripley and Heanor host a broad range of retail shops from smaller independent traders and family operated department stores to well known high street names.


Belper hosts a monthly Farmers Market offering you the chance to purchase directly from the supplier and to tempt you as you try before you buy, or why not visit the Heanor or Alfreton Antique Centres if you are looking for something a little more unusual.


De Bradelei Stores in Belper offers a unique shopping outlet in a beautifully restored mill, and at Denby Visitor Centre you will discover a relaxed Courtyard shopping experience - light years from the hustle and bustle of the high street or shopping malls.


The range and diversity of leading manufacturers based in Amber Valley has helped to establish the Amber Valley Individual Shopping Trail for those who love a bargain. 


Companies including John Smedley and David Nieper have shops in the area. Their outlets offer excellent value for money and a huge variety of merchandise. There are sometimes products available that you are unable to purchase elsewhere including design samples and end of lines.
