Bracknell’s new £240 million retail development The Lexicon opened to the public yesterday seeing around 10,000 customers visit by lunch time. The new development, which Retail Gazette was given exclusive access to ahead of its opening , includes the first brand-new Fenwick store in 14 years, a 12-screen Cineworld with a 4DX screen, and a range of fashion and beauty retailers. Legal & General Capital developed the retail site alongside Schroder UK Real Estate Fund and Bracknell Forest Council.
