Axminster - Any deals to be found here?

I'm travelling to Axminster right now to visit family for a few day, sitting at London Waterloo waiting for my train.

If anyone has read any of my other comments you will know I am travelling to NZ soon and filling up suitcases with bargain.. mainly clothes, shoes... and chocolate oranges.

I'll be in Axminster soon and looking at Google maps it doesn't look as though there are any retails shops akin to my bargain hunting needs.. there doesn't even seem to be a Tesco or Boots there!?!

Am I missing something? Can anyone give me any recommendations or advice on where to find some deals? (Doesn't necessarily need to be a deal but I wouldn't expect anything less from HUKD members!).

...oh, before anyone suggests a nice carpet I'm afraid my baggage allowance won't allow it!

There is a Tesco very close to the train station in Axminster and a Boots in the town.

Ahh.. that is good to hear, thank you. For some odd reason google maps never showed them. What are the chances there are more hidden shops that I don't see.. I really need to pickup a few pairs of jeans.. although I don't think the difficult part is finding shops that sell jeans but finding jeans that are not skinny! oO

axminster is known for its carpets and rugs, there is a factory shop there as far as i know

I live close by and don't know of a Factory shop in Axminster.

Only place I can think of in Axminster to buy Jeans would be trinityhouseaxminster.co.uk/. But might be a bit pricey!!

(_;) I can't help it if that is the case.. joking aside though, as per my original post I wasn't interested in carpets and that is all you seem to have added to this thread (oh, and Cornish pasties). I appreciate you trying and welcome any useful feedback around what I was originally looking for, wasn't trying to be smart but just think you perhaps never read my post fully.
