Bar & Restaurant
When The Oracle first opened in Reading it boosted the town’s retail offering by a third. And it’s been pleasing shoppers with new ideas and exciting brands ever since. This is a medium-sized centre, easy for the 16 million annual visitors to walk around, shop, socialise and eat. The Oracle is anchored by House of Fraser and Debenhams, and includes an 11-screen cinema.
This space is on the ground floor, next to GAME. Formerly a fashion shop, it’s fitted out with changing rooms and spotlights overhead. The decor features wooden walls and muted tones – an easy backdrop to work with any idea. At the back there’s a toilet and two small rooms for office or storage space. Plus a fire exit for deliveries.
Reading is the busiest train station for London commuters outside of the capital, home to thousands of city workers. With 2,300 parking spaces on site, many arrive here at the weekend looking to spend. Show them something new.
The Oracle houses 113 tenants over 750,00 sq ft.
The centre includes 90 retailers, 21 restaurants and an 11-screen cinema.
Annual footfall is 16 million and average retail spend is £76.
77% of the centre’s catchment area belongs to the top 3 highest-spending demographic categories.
