We’ve previously commented that the Blacks sign over their doorway in Camberley’s High Street boasted that the company was ‘erts’. Since then, the ‘O’ of ‘outdoor’ has slipped as well.
We can now guess why there’s been a lack of maintenance. The shop is closing down. We can only hope that all the staff affected find new jobs pretty soon.
The council’s stated ambition of turning Camberley into a top 100 retail destination in the next few years is starting to look very hollow. Indeed, we suspect that the idea has been quietly buried already. However, it really shouldn’t have seen the light of day in the first place. (We suspect that the idea was actually suggested by agents working for The Mall, and that the council echoed it without thinking carefully enough first.)
