Devizes features a variety of local and national shops including a large Sainsbury's that's just under a mile from the new development.

Weekly general and collectors markets, farmers' markets and continental markets also serve to give the town a rich sense of character and community.
A visit to the town's central Market Place offers several restaurants and cafes for laidback afternoons and evening meals, as well as a range of boutiques and shops.
