Tk Maxx to close in the Kennet Centre

BARGAIN designer outlet TK Maxx will soon be relocating from its home in the Kennet Centre to larger premises at Newbury Retail Park.

Signs in the store window say the Kennet Centre store will close on Wednesday, May 3 before the new store at the retail park opens its doors on May 4.

Last year speculation mounted over the future of the town centre shopping arcade after it was bought by US firm HIG Capital.

However in November the Kennet Centre's management team gave assurances that the building would not be demolished and instead undergo an ‘exciting redevelopment’.

The centre currently comprises 50 stores/units and the Vue cinema.

    Something needs doing with the Kennet Centre, it has never been fully occupied since it opened, and since Parkway opened it is dead, practically nothing there now.

    Rents must be more affordable to attract new business to the growing number of empty units. Foot fall will plunge after this latest pull out! Just what is WBC doing to alleviate the long lingering death of this tired old friend?

    Well it's hardly surprising given its moving to a brand new store at the retail park. I heard Iceland was going into the unit...
