Jacksons Corner is a thoroughfare in the English town of Reading, Berkshire. It is a prominent landmark site and is on the corner of Market Place and Kings Road.

History[edit]

For much of its history, the site of Jacksons Corner was home to the Reading branch of the Jacksons department store chain.

Popular culture[edit]

Jacksons Corner is featured briefly in the PBS Documentary "Secrets of Selfridges".[1] The small interview covers a few of the strict guidelines for staff members in the early 1900s, as well as a look at the previously unseen upper floor, which houses the former staff quarters.
