Bracknell Regeneration

Hello

Thanks for calling in.

Way back in May last year and then in March this year, I wrote about Bracknell's regeneration and with only three months to go before the new shopping centre opens, I thought I'd go back and see how it was getting on.
















Well it's certainly coming along but there's still more to do.  M&S should be opening at the end of July.

  1. A new shopping centre opened in leeds back in 2013 and then another one last year, though I haven't actually been into Leeds since it opened so I haven't seen it yet. It seems that it's only the large chain stores which take the shops in them though which is such a shame when so many independent shops are closing down. I do use chain stores but I try to use and support smaller shops too when I can.

    1. Leeds is such a huge place, I couldn't get over how many people were there, mainly students. The trouble with towns having all the same shops is that it's not worth going anywhere else whereas in the past you could find different things in the independent stores.

  2. I must admit I am a fan of M & S, although now that we have moved there isn't one locally.

    1. M&S is not as good as it used to be but I do like certain things from there.

  3. I guess it will all be open ready for December (I won't say the 'C' word yet:)) I always used to go to M&S but I don't buy from them very often now as they don't seem to stock the things I like anymore:)

    1. I feel the same, they've lost their way a bit, especially clotheswise but they are always good for a cheese scone!
