Mayor opens new Peacocks store in Queens Sq, Crawley

Crawley Mayor Carlos Castro opened the new store this morning and already there was a queue of people waiting to see inside.



The store is located in the corner of Queens Sq opposite Costa Coffee and has been outfitted with very glamourous furnishings.

Crawley Mayor Carlos Castro and Peacocks Regional Manager Les McLean.

Peacocks has launched an exclusive Shoe Heaven section which they hope will show off a wide variety of items that just can’t be found elsewhere.

Glam doesn’t describe the range available and will certainly be a hit for the holiday season.

They have also launched a mini me nightwear range for all the family.

Peacocks is open Mon-Sat 9-5:30 and Sun 11-5pm

The store has also launched its Christmas clothing with a huge range of jumpers for all the family and even a while Christmas suit for only £40!

Peacocks staff show off some of the Christmas jumper range.

Mayor Carlos Castro said:

“Really happy to welcome Peacocks back to Crawley. I met everyone today and the staff is really excited and friendly. This particular store features a shoe zone, a new concept for Peacocks, great addition to their selection and proof Crawley is the place for business.

I’m really pleased to see another known brand filling in the gap and I am sure this store will do well in our town and I wish them the best.”
