A LUXURY bathroom design store and an outdoor clothing and equipment specialist are the latest businesses announced to be coming to Peach Place in Wokingham.

Ripples and Mountain Warehouse will be joining the list of new businesses coming to the town in April.

Bernie Pich, assistant director for commercial property, said: “I’m very pleased Ripples will be opening a brand new bespoke bathroom showroom at Peach Place, joining Beyond the Download and Cook on the Rose Street side of the development.

“Ripples is a fantastic company with showrooms already located in places such as Beaconsfield, Winchester and Bath. We think they will be a great fit for Wokingham and reflect the quality of business the town deserves to attract."

Mr Pich believes that Mountain Warehouse will also be popular with residents.

He added: “Mountain Warehouse will also be a great new store for the town and we expect them to be very popular with active local residents.

“They have a real focus on excellently designed and great quality outdoor gear and put an emphasis on making sure their staff are well trained and knowledgeable so they can give straightforward advice as well as great customer service.”

Other new businesses set to open are Cook, the Leafy Elephant, Sit & Sip and Blue Orchid, who will all be opening their doors in the coming months.

Last week on Saturday, April 13 residents were invited to come and see the new square before it’s opening, Mr Pich says the feedback was positive.

He said: “ Feedback was very positive from people who came to have a look at the square and with Eden Lounge and Cook set to open any day now, Sit & Sip and Blue Orchid shortly after and Leafy Elephant in mid-May there is real positivity about how the town centre is coming together and how great Peach Place will be when it opens later this month.

“It’s been wonderful to see people really get behind the fantastic new businesses.

"There were crowds gathered waiting to get in to Beyond the Download when they opened up for Record Store Day on Saturday morning.

"I’m told the Leafy Elephant sold out their opening night tickets within a few minutes of advertising it online.”

The new square is hoped to open by the end of April.
