Today, 7 March 2018, marks the fact that The Lexicon has now been open for a fabulous 6 months.
The town centre is now ranked the 33rd top shopping centre in the UK by industry commentator, Trevor Wood Associates, up from its previous ranking of 255th in 2017.
And, research undertaken by FSP Retail Business Consultants has revealed the new town centre is now the destination of choice for 61% of people living in the area. This is up from a figure 17% when the same research was carried out in the opening week.
Rob Morris, general manager at The Lexicon says:
“To date, there have been more than 8 million visits to The Lexicon, which has exceeded all our expectations. We are delighted with everyone’s support for and reaction to the new town centre.”
Cllr Marc Brunel-Walker, executive member for economic development and regeneration, says:
“The Lexicon took a lot of hard work and determination from both the council and Bracknell Regeneration Partnership but the reaction to it, as can be seen from visitor numbers, means it was more than worth it. It really does provide the shopping, leisure and dining experience our residents and visitors had been wanting for such a long time.”
