Shopping in Wrea Green

As a small Rural Fylde Village, Wrea Green has a limited number if shops.

The local village store is part of the SPAR chain of shops and acts as a newsagents, post office and grocers. It is one of the hubs of village life. There is also a general convenience store at Ribby Hall.

The much missed G&VA Dobsons provided an alternative grocery store until George, Adrian and Bill retired several years ago. In 1981, they were the recipient of the prestigious "UK Shopkeepers of the Year Award".  The greengrocers on Ribby Road shut down several years ago.

The towns of Kirkham (2miles) and Lytham St.Annes (4 miles) provide the nearest shopping areas. Blackpool (6 miles) and the City of Preston (10 miles) are where all the major stores can be found. Fleetwood Freeport is another shopping centre worth a mention. Further afield, the towns of Bolton, Southport and Blackburn along with cities of Liverpool and Manchester have larger shopping centres and are within an hours drive.
