Gatesbridge’s new Merriweather Mall is opening this September.  With an area of 320,000 square metres, the Merriweather Mall is going to be the biggest mall in the south west.  It’s located next to the motorway, has its own bus station and 2000 car parking spaces, so it is convenient for everyone/body. 
The mall has five areas, all under cover. The largest, Main Street, is a shopping area on three floors. Here, you’ll find all the major chain stores and department stores.  You can buy fashion items and all the famous brand names. There is also a large customer service counter and help desk.
Situated on two levels, the market square is where you can find traditional market stalls. On the lower floor, there are food stalls, a butcher’s, baker’s, a fishmonger’s, news agent’s and delicatessen. On the upper floor, you can find stalls selling hardware and haberdashery.
Bohemia is at the rear of the mall. Here, you’ll find quirky, independent shops selling everything from new music CDs and books to clothes and handicrafts. 
The Palisade is more upmarket. Here you will find fashion boutiques, jewellers, antiques and furniture.  There are also two banks and a post office located along The Palisade.
The Showground is the entertainment centre of the mall.  On the ground floor, there is a food court where you can find cuisine from around the world, including Chinese Japanese, Thai and Italian food.  There is a large arena where events take place through the year. There is also an eight-screen cinema, a night club and a bowling alley.
