Hamstead Village is a local shopping center along Old Walsall Road.

The original heart of the village, a row of victorian shops still exists and has been joined over the years by various other blocks of shops.

Larger storesĀ  have now appeared with a Lidl supermarket and plans were submitted for a new Sainsburys just outside the village on the old GKN factory site. This was later abandoned and replaced by a new large Lidl which opened in November 2021 with the older small Lidl closing down.
