We are on the High Street too! All in one location...
Our Menswear outlet (pictured left) encompasses two interconnected units spread over some 3,500 square feet of selling space.
Our smaller Footwear store is separately located just two doors down from the main store.
Our similarly sized discount Menswear outlet is located directly between the above. (Note: This store is open on Saturdays only.)
At John Banks stores we cultivate a relaxed shopping atmosphere.
There are no high pressure sales tactics with us. Shop at your own pace as you browse our latest ranges and, if you require assistance, you will find our personable, friendly and knowledgeable staff only too happy to help. (This is not just our opinion as you can see here.) Plus, you can benefit from the added confidence, in all your sizings, coming from trying anything you see on this website on before you buy it. (We now even offer payment faciliities via Paypal in store.)
Alternatively, if you are in a hurry, or have seen an item you want is in danger of selling out, you can use our new Click & Collect Service. Have your goods all paid for, held for you and ready to go when you pick them up at your own convenience. (Click logo right for more details.)
So, which ever way you choose to shop with us, come and see us today...
How To Visit Our Store
Getting to us is simple. We are conviently located in the centre of the country on the North-Eastern outskirts of Birmingham. (Just 3½ miles from the city centre, 7 minutes by car from Star City or 5 minutes from Erdington High Street.)
SatNav-type devices should find the store without any problems. However, if you are locating us the old-fashioned way...
We are just 3 minutes from M6 Junction 6 (Gravelly Hill Interchange aka Spaghetti Junction).
On approaching Junction 6, from either North or South, follow the signs for the A38 (Lichfield). Do not follow the A38M.
The plain old A38 will bring you to the roundabout underneath Spaghetti Junction. At the end of the slip road take the first turning on the left (Slade Road). This is also signposted for Stockland Green.
Follow Slade Road for 1.1 miles (1.8km). We are situated on the junction of Marsh Hill, Reservoir Road (both part of the A4040) and Streetley Road. Look out for us on your left-hand side before the traffic lights with the new Flaming Grill's Village Green pub (formerly Modern China buffet restaurant) and the Gala Bingo.
We have lots of free private parking on the front. (10 wide bays including a disabled bay.)
We are also well serviced by public transport links:
The No.65 Birmingham to Perry Common is the bus to take to us to, and from, the city centre. It can be picked up on The Priory Queensway (Stop BS9 in front of the entrance to the McClaren building) in Birmingham centre's main shopping area. (If coming from further afield this stop is less than a 10-minute walk from New St., Moor St. or Snow Hill rail stations.) After a short 15- to 20-minute journey, it stops at the Stockland Cafe, just a few steps away from where we are at the traffic lights ahead. These buses run every 8-10 minutes during the day.
For other starting points in the city, the No.11s Birmingham Outer Circle route also stops just across the Green from us on Reservoir Road. The 11s run every 10-15 minutes.
For more local connections the Claribel Coach's No.600 bus also passes by down Marsh Lane and Marsh Hill; services run nominally every hour.
Local Birmingham to Lichfield and Lichfield to Birmingham trains run every 10 minutes, between Birmingham's main, newly modernised, New Street terminus and Gravelly Hill Station. Gravelly Hill is the third stop out of the centre; journey time is also 10 minutes. From here it is just a 15-minute walk to the store. Turn left down Hutton Hill and right on to Slade Road. We are some 500m from here on the other side of the road. Alternatively, the 65 bus can be caught at the stop opposite as soon as you reach Slade Road. Get off by Stockland Cafe and we are just a few strides further on, on the same side. Return trains to Birmingham leave from Platform 1 on the far side of the bridge.
Another method to conclude your journey to us from the city centre is via private hire taxi, Uber (£8 to £12) or Black Cab (around £15). Journey time: 15 minutes.
Please remember to check our opening times before your visit. They can be found here. We look forward to seeing you!
