THE wait is almost over, with just weeks to go

The opening date of a nationwide fashion chain in The Brooks Shopping Centre has been announced after months of work to get the store ready.

High Street fashion chain T.K Maxx will throw open its doors to shoppers at 9am on Thursday, March 8.

The arrival forms part of a £1 million revamp at The Brooks to boost its appeal to shoppers.

The 120,000 sq. ft shopping centre is currently home to shops including Primark, New Look, Waterstone’s, HMV and The Entertainer.

But it also has several long-term empty units and has only been fully let for around a year since its opening in 1991.
