TK Maxx lines up move into Camden High Street

Clothing store plans move into old Waterstones

CUT-PRICE clothing retailer TK Maxx is planning a move into Camden Town.

Before the coronavirus lockdown, the company had drawn up designs for a new store which would take over two units formerly home to the Waterstones bookshop and a branch of Poundland.

The proposals are currently in the planning system at Camden Council which will decide whether the conversion can go ahead.

TK Maxx’s shops are currently closed and it is not running an online service during the lockdown. It has around 350 branches around the country and trades on the idea that fashion bargains can be found if shoppers are willing to trawl through its racks of clothes.

Its website tells customers: We’re sorry but currently all our stores in the UK are closed to customers. We hope to reopen soon so please check regularly for the most up to date information.”


While Poundland has been closed for several months, Waterstones made a shock exit from the high street earlier this year. Staff posted a message saying they were “sad” to be closing after 25 years in Camden Town, but the booksellers said they were hoping to find a new site nearby soon. It is understood that the company had been unable to agree a new lease on the property.
