Skechers and Whittards join Bracknell line-up
The Lexicon Bracknell has signed two new brands, Skechers and Whittard of Chelsea, building on a successful first four months of trading. The new signings take the total number of new brands the Lexicon has brought to the town centre to 38.
Skechers, the American footwear company, will open in a 5,226-sq ft store on Braccan Walk while international tea, coffee and cocoa retailer, Whittard of Chelsea has signed for a 1,217-sq ft unit on The Avenue.
Jessica Berney, head of retail at Schroder Real Estate, said the new lettings “demonstrate the ongoing interest in the development from both customers and national and international retailers alike.” She said the Lexicon has already started to prove itself as the Berkshire destination of choice with footfall of 5.8 million achieved in the four months since launch with up to 16 million for the year projected.
The new town centre was developed by the Bracknell Regeneration Partnership, a 50:50 joint venture between Legal & General Capital and Schroder UK Real Estate Fund, working with Bracknell Forest Council. Joint agents for The Lexicon are CBRE and Lunson Mitchenall.
