The economy in Bolton has seen some major changes as it was once a major area for the textile industry. By 1911 the textile industry in Bolton employed about 36,000 people. The last mill to be constructed was Sir John Holden’s Mill in 1927. The cotton industry declined from the 1920s. A brief upturn after the Second World War was not sustained, and the industry had virtually vanished by the end of the 20th century.

Bolton is the home of the family bakery, Warburtons , established in 1876 on Blackburn Road . Bolton attracts visitors to its shopping centres, markets, public houses, restaurants and cafes in the town centre as well retail parks and leisure facilities close to the town centre and in the surrounding towns and suburbs. Tourism plays a part in the economy, visitor attractions include Hall i’ th’ Wood , Smithills Hall and Country Park, Last Drop Village , Barrow Bridge and the Bolton Steam Museum .
