A new food retailer may take over the Boots store at the Sainsbury’s shopping area in Calcot





A new food retailer is set to take over the Boots store at the Sainsbury’s shopping area in Calcot, writes Local Democracy Reporter James Aldridge.

Situated on the A4 Bath Road, the retail park has a variety of stores including Sports Direct, B&M, McDonald’s and a Boots.

But Boots could soon go and be replaced with a retailer.

A plan has been submitted to allow food and drink sales at Unit 1 of the retail park, currently occupied by Boots and situated next to Sports Direct.

Boots remains open from 8am to 8pm each day, but information from planning agent Quod states the store is close to ‘reaching its lease expiry’.

Plan sketches by Boyle + Summers lack detail, with the proposed floor plan only stating the 10,023 sq m floorspace for the unit.

Furthermore, the description of the plan states that the application is to allow the ‘unrestricted use’ of the unit ‘including the sale of both non-food and food and drink products’.

You can view the application by typing reference 24/00863/FUL into West Berkshire Council’s planning portal.

The plans were shared by councillor Jane Stewart (Con, Tilehurst Birch Copse) to inform neighbours.
