The good burghers of Bracknell in beautiful Berkshire are soon to see the first new store to be built in their town centre for a quarter of a century.

“This sort of project starts with jobs in the actual building of the store, plus all the sub-contractors for glazing, electrical, plumbing, tiling and painting and all that, then there are the staff for the supermarket when it’s trading – check-out chicks, cleaners, security, night-fillers and others – and then there are the ancillaries and service industries such as electricians and plumbers when things break down, the suppliers such as bakers, fruiterers, grocers and fishmongers – it goes on and on. A development like this in a country town has awesome ramifications, not to mention that shoppers get more competitively priced goods.”

Waitrose’s director of development, Nigel Keen, says, "This is a great opportunity (for us) to create a very nice gateway into the town centre and show our confidence in the future of Bracknell as an exciting retail destination." His company’s move into the town, he adds, is the culmination of a long-standing ambition to open such a store in Bracknell, with its array of attractively priced offerings.
