Yes, you did read that correct!
After almost 33 years at 151 London Road, the time has come and The Rock Box has packed it’s bags & moved on to pastures new.
However, before you panic too much, we’ve moved a mere 500 feet around the corner into The Square Shopping Centre. Our new location is on Obelisk Way between Boots & Argos (see map below).
It all happened rather quickly and our old store at 151 London Road is now CLOSED.
Our new store in the town centre is NOW OPEN!
Our new home is located at 34 Obelisk Way in The Square Shopping Centre.
Our next door neighbours are the lovely folks at Surrey Home and Gifts & Carpetmart Premier Floors.
Our telephone number, e-mail addresses & social media channels are unchanged.
That’s all well & good, but why on earth have you moved?
Moving The Rock Box has not been an easy decision. We’ve spent a ton of time & love on the old store since September 2018. More importantly, we are very aware of the history and role that the store has played in the Camberley music scene since Ken Dudley set up the Box way back in 1987. Continuing to be Camberley’s Music Store is important to us.
However, Surrey Heath Borough Council announced in April of this year that they had selected a development partner for the London Road redevelopment. The redevelopment envisages the whole of London Road between Park Street & The High Street (including our building) being bulldozed for the new development. This has prompted a great deal of uncertainty for businesses on London Road. We have seen footfall continuing to decline along the street.
An opportunity came up to move the store prior to the redevelopment and we had to make a quick decision. We believe the new location gives a tremendous opportunity to grow the store, stock new ranges (and re-stock some) as well as, we hope, provide a better space for live music and DJs in store. We want The Rock Box to host live music again and we are working away behind the scenes to bring live music in store in 2020.
So How Do I Get There?
With the old store to your left, walk past the dry cleaners until you come to the pedestrian walkway Sparvell Way on your left. Walk down Sparvell Way until you get to the doors of the shopping centre, go through those doors and turn right. Our new store is the second shop on the right. It’s 1 – 2 minutes maximum from old to new.
