At 10am on Saturday 8th December, Waterstones will welcome Councillor Roger Upton, Chair of the West Bridgford Growth Board, to the launch of its new bookshop on Central Avenue to cut the ribbon and officially declare the shop open.
The celebrations will continue throughout the day with wine and mince pies, balloons for the children and a warm welcome from Waterstones Bookshop Manager Helen Binder and her bookselling team.
Helen Binder says, “We have been thrilled with the response from the local community to the news of our bookshop opening. We have been given such a lovely welcome and we are looking forward to doing the same for everyone who comes to celebrate with us. We can’t wait to meet our customers, thank them for their support and help everyone with their Christmas present shopping.”
Waterstones West Bridgford will stock a hand-picked range of books, stationery and gifts and will have a strong community focus, supporting local writers and working with local schools and libraries to champion reading.
For families, the dedicated children’s area will offer the best books for younger readers, an inspiring selection of toys and games and an engaging programme of child-friendly activities and events.
A bookseller on Bridlesmith Gate in Nottingham since 1988, the opening of Waterstones second shop in the city restores a specialist bookshop to West Bridgford for the first time since the closure of the independent Buy The Book in 2011.
