Having worked with Waterstones over the last few months, Love Wimbledon is delighted to announce their return to Wimbledon town centre.
Waterstones are planning to open in the early autumn at 40-42 The Broadway opposite The Piazza. Their new store will be furnished with the latest interiors from Waterstones and a great choice of books for the Wimbledon community. Waterstones Wimbledon will tailor its range to reflect the trends and interests of our local market, as well as stocking popular bestsellers that are in demand across the country.
Waterstones new premises will be the latest concept store from the retailers providing ample choice and a great shopping experience. The last remaining chain of specialist bookshops on the high street, Waterstones offers an unrivalled array of regular bookshop events, with outstanding service from passionate, knowledgeable staff who are ready to recommend the book that you didn’t know you wanted.
Helen Clark Bell, BID Manager commented “We have worked tirelessly with Waterstones to find the right location for them so that they can return to Wimbledon Town Centre. They have been missed by the Wimbledon community and we are delighted we will have a brand new store in our town centre selling books, stationery and other useful accessories”.
James Daunt CEO of Waterstones added “Having been so unceremoniously evicted from Wimbledon, Waterstones is delighted to have found a new home. In fact, we can now even think of it as a blessing in disguise. We will return with a spanking new shop in very nice premises. It promises to be a lovely new bookshop to which we look forward greatly to welcoming back our customers. The many letters of regret we received from readers in Wimbledon on our closure was greatly appreciated, as is the enthusiasm that we return, along with the practical help of Love Wimbledon to the achievement of this.”
