New Mercer Street store celebrated at opening event on January 10th as travel bookstore moves out of iconic Long Acre flagship

The event, which kicks off with drinks and canapes at 5.45pm, will also see speeches and the announcement of the shortlist for the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards 2019.

The Mercer Street store is round the corner from the Long Acre site, and, at 4,000 sq ft of floorspace spread across two floors rather than three, slightly smaller.

The move, which is less than 150 yards geographically, was triggered by a steep increase in rent at the famous Long Acre store, driven in part by the increasing popularity of Covent Garden as a premier tourist and retail site in Central London.
