Jack Wills plans to open new store in Taunton

The British clothing brand Jack Wills has submitted a planning application for a new store in Taunton.

Launched in Salcombe, Devon in 1999, Jack Wills has stores across the United Kingdom and internationally and plans to open a new store on Fore Street.

Commenting earlier this month, David Evans, Business Development Manager at Taunton Deane Borough Council said:

“I am really pleased to see this application by Jack Wills.

This is a prestigious national retailer, selling a high quality product that is entirely suited to Taunton’s own ambitious regeneration plans.

The refurbishment proposed will safeguard and improve the unit for retail within the town centre and will create employment opportunities. I am therefore fully supportive of the application.”

The Australian-based stationery brand, Smiggle, will be opening a store next door.
