A new lease of life for Bracknell
In 1949 the sleepy, ancient town of Bracknell was declared a ‘new town’ in the aftermath of the Second World War. Over the next couple of decades the once sparsely inhabited area steadily grew in population. In 2008, it was decided that due to Bracknell’s age, the town should undergo major renovation, which would include redeveloping the town centre to create new homes and provide new services. The result includes the Lexicon where you’ll soon be able to find the brand new M&S store.
Today all of us at M&S are proud to be at the very heart of this restoration with the opening of a two-storey 80,000 sq ft store in the town centre. The site is perfectly situated between Reading, Maidenhead and Windsor and with plenty of local parking and good bus and rail links, it’s easily accessible for the surrounding towns.
“Bracknell is a fantastic and diverse community, it’s surrounded by forests and green fields and it’s often easy to dismiss its potential. I grew up just a few miles away and it’s been amazing to see the town come back to life with the arrival of The Lexicon. I’m really excited for M&S’ return to Bracknell, I can’t wait to get to know our customers and cement a new relationship with them.” Tom, Store Manager
The new store will feature the complete family of M&S products and services from our perfect food to contemporary fashion. That means we’ll be recruiting for all levels (from Customer Assistants to Section Managers) in various departments, both full and part-time. We have something to suit everyone’s lifestyle so it’s a great time to join us.
“We are delighted to welcome Marks & Spencer back to Bracknell. Its reputation for quality products and service excellence is exactly what we are endeavouring to cultivate within our new town centre,” says Helen Barnett, Marketing Manager at BRP.Inside M&S
