The SquareIf you have been shopping in Camberley recently you may have noticed The Square shopping centre is undergoing a transformation!

Grace Reynold’s walk has been the focus of the first phase of Surrey Heath Borough Council’s £8 million refurbishment investment in The Square.  It now features new flooring, shop fronts, fresh new lighting and facades.  In addition most of the old facades throughout the shopping centre have been removed.  The works will now pause for Christmas trading and begin again in January 2018. 

Karen Whelan, Chief Executive SHBC said, “It’s great to see the substantial work in The Square coming together to provide a much needed update to Grace Reynold’s Walk.  The completion of this section gives us a real idea of how much the shopping centre will be improved when the project finishes next year.  The Square is becoming a much brighter place to shop and meet friends.”

The Square CamberleyThe Square was purchased by SHBC in 2016.  It is a 480,000 sq ft covered shopping centre and is home to more than 150 national and independent retailers. Brands include Smiggle, O2, TopShop, Patisserie Valerie, River Island and Monsoon, anchored by House of Fraser, Boots and Primark, all benefitting from an average weekly footfall of more than 170,000.

SHBC has made a significant investment in Camberley Town Centre and also has plans to regenerate other areas of the town including The High Street, Public Realm areas and London Road.  You can find out more on the council’s website.
