A currency store which has served Slough for nearly a decade is to leave Queensmere Shopping Centre.

No 1 Currency situated adjacent to the now closed western side of Queensmere will be shuttered "in the coming weeks".

It comes amid uncertainty regarding the Slough Central development which proposed a staggered closure of the Queensmere and Observatory Shopping Centre, before knocking down the retail area for a new hybrid mixed-use space.

However, no update has been given by British Land, acting on behalf of ADIA since August, with the council indicating that the company was reevaluating the scheme amid the current economic situation.

A spokesperson from Fexco said: “No 1 Currency is expanding its presence in Slough, with a new location in The Observatory Shopping Centre.

"This new store will be more convenient for our customers in a more prominent location.

"This is a milestone for us, as we have been in Slough for nearly 10 years and see it as one of our key retail locations within the UK.

"We are really looking forward to opening the doors of this new store in mid-December, which will mark nearly a decade in Slough.

"As a result, we will be closing our existing store in the Queensmere Shopping Centre in the coming weeks, and staff will transition to the new location by early December."

Once No 1 Currency leaves Queensmere, just three other businesses will remain along the Leopold Mall and Elliman Square section. These are a barber shop, nail salon and Home Values who are currently displaying a "closing down" sign in their window. Ernest Jones sits on the corner of Curzon Mall.
