Big high street chain opens new Crawley store
A big high street chain has opened a new store in Queens Square.
Peacocks is opposite Costa Coffee and was officially opened on Thursday by the Mayor of Crawley, Councillor Carlos Castro and Peacocks regional manager Les McLain.
A Crawley Borough Council spokesman said: “Peacocks clothing store is the latest retailer to take up shop in Queens Square, bringing more jobs and investment into the town centre.
“Following a string of retailers moving into the square, including Metrobank who opened earlier this month, the new store is welcomed, as the council – in partnership with West Sussex County Council and The Local Enterprise Partnership, work towards revitalising the public realm with the multi-million pound Crawley Growth Programme.”
Councillor Peter Smith, Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Development, added: “The opening of Peacocks marks the first time Queens Square has been fully occupied since the regeneration and I am delighted to have them join our bustling town centre.
“At the council we have worked hard to regenerate our town centre and the opening of new stores – such as Peacocks, is a great indicator of our success”
