Blackwood is the second largest town in the County Borough and is one of two sub-regional centres..

The catchment area has a population of approximately 34,000 and includes Argoed, Cefn Fforest, Penmaen,Pengam, Pontllanfraith and Ynysddu. There are a number of multiple retailers present in Blackwood town centre including: Argos, Wilko, Costa Coffee, Peacocks, Boots, Iceland, B&M Bargains, Superdrug and Poundland, in addition to the five screen Maxime Cinema.

The town also offers shoppers a wide choice of independent retailers, making the strength of its appeal the range and diversity of its retail offer.

Within the last few years Blackwood has dramatically improved its transport infrastructure with the construction of Sirhowy Enterprise Way and the iconic Chartist Bridge. The road links the town centre with Oakdale Business Park and the communities of Pen-y-Fan and Oakdale, opening up the town to an extra 5,000 potential customers.

Blackwood has long been an interchange for bus routes from all over the South East Wales Valleys and the construction of the award winning Interchange Bus Station increases the accessibility of the town to people from the surrounding area. These new investments make Blackwood an attractive option for investors looking to locate in the South East Wales Valleys.

Private sector development of two retail parks, located at either end of the town centre, has created new opportunities for retailers looking for a presence in the South East Wales Valleys area.
