Exciting plans are in the pipeline for a new store for leading designer discounter TK Maxx within our much-loved shopping centre.
Jackson Square Shopping Centre is planning to welcome TK Maxx in a 21,009 sq ft space within the former Argos unit in 2022. The new and improved Jackson Square will see the relocation of some stores, enhance unit opportunities and will allow additional space for new occupiers to add to our wide variety of existing retail offer.
Having a popular anchor store like TK Maxx will add to the wider offering within the centre and town whilst helping local businesses generate custom which will support the town’s economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.
The new retail store will create new jobs for up to 50 local workers that will be employed in a mix of full, part time and casual roles; in addition to creating opportunities within construction and further employment in the supply chain, helping the economic recovery.
The development will compliment the council’s ‘Old River Lane’ proposals, which are mainly leisure based and will provide an improved, active link between the High Street and Old River Lane Site.
Significant public realm improvements will enhance the vitality of the Bridge Street area and street scene. Altogether this will see improvement on aesthetics whilst enhancing the setting of the Conservation Area. Plus, visual surveillance will also be increased, improving the safety of the area.
Catch a glimpse of the development’s ‘before’ and ‘after’ to show the store’s location within the centre and how the mall is likely to look once the redevelopment is complete.
The focus is very much about keeping our customers informed on every step of our renovation journey and ultimately encouraging them to share our vision of continuing to create a vibrant and relevant retail destination that sits at the heart of our town.
We have listed some of the key benefits of the development project above, but you may also have other reasons why you support this application.
