The shopping complex, which has a floorspace of 24,100 m2 (259,000 sq ft) and was refurbished in the late 1990s,[1] comprises over sixty stores on two levels and houses the central library for Port Talbot. Where the library is situated today, there was formerly a market area with stalls operated mainly by local traders. Examples of high-profile stores in the shopping centre include: Wilko, Home Bargains, Boots, JD Sports, Superdrug, Poundland, Clinton Cards, Iceland, New Look and Argos. There are also many smaller shops like Gamestation and Holland & Barrett.

Aberafan House[edit]

Rising to the south-east of the Aberafan Centre complex is Aberafan House. This concrete tower block is prominently visible when travelling through Port Talbot on the M4 motorway. The building is used partly by government organisations and partly by private firms.
