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.”
