College Town, Berkshire
College Town is home to a large and well-known out-of-town mercantile development, "The Meadows", which was built in 1988. It comprises a large Tesco Extra hypermarket and a Marks & Spencer, two of the largest in the country.
There is also a branch of Waitrose at 390-398 Yorktown Road. It has a sales area of 18,795 sq ft and opened in 2007. The store occupies the premises of a former Safeway store, which was originally opened in 1985. It was closed by Morrisons in November 2005 (which had acquired Safeway in March 2004) after it was deemed to be too small for conversion to the Morrisons format, along with issues over the leasehold of the store.
