Star Courier (Surrey & Hants) - - FRONT PAGE -

IF YOU have been driv­ing around the Mead­ows Round­about re­cently you may have spot­ted some ran­dom large red speech mark signs.

Not quite. In fact, it is some re­ally sub­tle ad­ver­tis­ing for the re­cently opened shop­ping cen­tre in Brack­nell – The Lex­i­con. The £ 240 mil­lion shop­ping cen­tre opened its doors to thou­sands of shop­pers on Septem­ber 7.

Ac­cord­ing to web­site Get Read­ing, this was an “his­toric” and “big” day for Brack­nell as the brand new mall re­placed a huge part of town.

Thou­sands turned up to the open­ing of a string of big high street names, but other peo­ple were slightly puz­zled over the sub­tle ad­ver­tise­ment tar­geted at nearby driv­ers.

Huge bright red speech mark signs popped up around the Mead­ows Round­about – a big junc­tion link­ing Farn­bor­ough , Read­ing, Wok­ing­ham and Brack­nell.
