Just read through this http://comparethesquare.wordpress.com/ Completely fair and impartial Laughing out loud
Looks they've decided that The City Square can only be made of concrete even though a design hasn't been chosen too Puzzled

Where exactly is hanon? On the website it says Market Street but google maps says its in the Green. I'm coming up at the start of April and wouldn't mind making a visit. Oh and any other good shops in Aberdeen yet?

On Union Street there is a big set of steps that go down to a lower street. Down those and tun left.

Attic is good as well. It's in the Academy shopping centre off Belmont street.

There really aren't too many good shops although there is an Urban Outfitters opening in the Summer.

The physical store on the Green and the web store is based on Market Street. I beleive that's the reason for the differing info. Both close to each other anyway so you'd find it easy enough.

Don't know, just heard from my flatmate who currently works at Topman and is thinking of moving in the Summer.

It's going to be across from the Priory in what used to be that home shop.

The unit that used to be the Pier? Not especially big compared to the edinburgh or glasgow ones of course but that would still be a pretty good spot for it.

As far as I know it's the Pier that they're moving into.

However grim Aberdeen looks, its got a nice vibe about it. Always enjoyed myself when i've been up there, people seem to have a much better attitude compared to other northern towns/cities, IMO.
