West Bridgford branch, trading as Waterstones, will open in December
Waterstones is to open a branch in the West Bridgford suburb of Nottingham. The chain has been trading from the city centre since 1988.
The new branch, which will open in time for Christmas, will carry the Waterstones brand, unlike some of the smaller shops that Waterstones has been opening in small towns. It will aim "to become part of the local community by curating an engaging events programme, working with local schools and communities to champion reading and being a welcoming place for readers of all ages".
Luke Taylor, Waterstones head of retail and bookselling, said: "[West Bridgford] has been crying out for a new bookshop and we are hopeful that a well-stocked and friendly shop will be a pleasing addition to a very vibrant high street. The small team of dedicated booksellers will be a mix of our very best and brightest from the sister shop in the city and a number of new team members recruited from the town."
