The Oasis

If you ask most people who live in Birmingham, at some stage the chances are they have shopped in the Oasis. It might have been in the seventies, eighties or nineties, but to this day it is still going strong. We have managed to out live most of the competition by offering Birmingham’s customers, something a little different that the usual offerings on the high street. The landscape around the Oasis has changed quiet a lot over the past few years, we have lost Virgin mega store, Toys r us, the 02 Academy, Costa mongers, and various other stores, yet some how we are still standing.
The store has over 30 of Birmingham’s independent traders under one roof, offering tattoos, piercing, clothing and lifestyle products. If you want something a little different we have it. Most of the labels you see on the high street will have started life in the Oasis or similar across the country. The store owners are constantly on the look out for the next big look, trend to offer Birmingham’s residents, before it hits the high street. On many occasions you will be able to get product 2 years before the likes of Primark, New look and Top shop murder the image.
If you want to help your local business, we need local people to shop in here more, rather than shop at the Bullring, this has even had an effect on the rest of Birmingham’s shopping streets, Cannon street, Great Western Arcade are just a few to mention, too much of Birmingham’s Independent traders are being hit by this recession, but still, the people of Birmingham shop in the Bullring. I am very happy to have the Bullring in Birmingham, as the city is more of a shopping destination, I would just love it if the shoppers could remember the roots of the city and visit us a little more.
As mentioned earlier most people will have a story off the Oasis to share, please share this with your sons and daughters, or even grand children, you may of grown up since your early shopping days, but we haven’t, we still offer that amazing shopping experience that is the Oasis.

About Me

My photo
The Oasis celebrated it's opening in Birmingham City Centre with a parade down Corporation Street. That was almost 40 years ago but Oasis, still today, remains a totally unique aspect of Birmingham's personality. At the Oasis we constantly strive to offer customers the best in unique and individual products, services and clothing. From piercings to pipes, boots to beads, tattoos to tutus and much more in-between. They're all available from a veritable plethora of independent retailers.
