Refurbishment at The Square helps secure commitment from prestigious brands Jack Wills and Clarks to Camberley


Thursday, 16 August, 2018


The second phase of SHBC's multimillion pound upgrade of The Square shopping centre in Camberley continues apace and is set to launch in time for the busy Christmas shopping period. 

The long-awaited refurbishment is delivering substantial improvements to the shopping centre, including new flooring, facades and lighting – ultimately creating a fresh contemporary space.

One of Britain’s quintessential fashion brands, Jack Wills, is set to open a new store in Camberley within the next two months.  This follows hot on the heels of a new five year commitment from shoe retailer Clarks and the recent openings of Foneworld, Luggage Solution and new lunch favourite in December last year, Muffin Break.

Jack Wills will occupy approximately 2,300 sq ft in a prime position in The Square.  As well as bringing a new fashion and lifestyle offer to Camberley, Jack Wills will be recruiting for its new store and the details will be available on The Square and Jack Wills’ websites soon.

Karen Whelan, CEO, Surrey Heath Borough Council said: “We are delighted to welcome Jack Wills to The Square.  It is testament to the extensive refurbishment programme currently underway in The Square and our great management team that we are able to attract prestigious brands like Jack Wills to Camberley.  Having met with the Directors of the brand, we know they share our values for high quality, exceptional service and a truly unique retail experience.

We hope to bring you many more popular retailers and brands as Camberley progresses through its redevelopment driven by SHBC.  Our vision for Camberley is to create a thriving town centre with a dynamic retail heart, stimulating leisure and cultural facilities and an outstanding experience for our residents and visitors.”

Neil Beaman, Property Director, Jack Wills said: “Given the commitment from Camberley and their local stakeholders to refurbish The Square, it’s a great time for Jack Wills to be part of the development, and we look forward to opening in the near future.”  

The opening will coincide with the completion of the latest phase of The Square’s refurbishment and Camberley’s fantastic programme of Christmas events.
