TOWN CENTRE NEWS Surrey Heath Borough Council is transforming retail and leisure spaces across Camberley to create a vibrant, contemporary place for all to enjoy. Your shopping experience in Camberley is becoming brighter!. If you have visited Camberley recently, you may have noticed that our shopping centre is undergoing an exciting makeover! Not only that, but it has a new name too - The Square. Since Surrey Heath Borough Council bought the shopping centre in November 2016, they have launched an exciting £8 million refurbishment programme which will introduce new flooring, lighting, facades and signage to this hugely popular shopping centre. Renovations are currently underway, and will continue until late 2018, with a pause over the Christmas period.
The Square is home to more than 150 national and independent retailers, with top brands including Smiggle, O2, TopShop, Patisserie Valerie, River Island and Monsoon, as well as larger stores including House of Fraser, Boots, Primark, Sainsbury’s & TK Maxx. So, if you’re looking for a cosy, family-friendly shopping trip, then The Square is just the place! It’s also undercover, with easy parking, so there’s no need to keep taking your coat on and off as you go from shop to shop!
