Waterstones to close Epsom store
22.02.12 | Katie Allen
Waterstones is to close its Epsom store next month, putting 10 jobs at risk.
The last day of trading for the store, based in The Ashley Centre in the town, will be 12th March.
Ten staff members will be affected by the move, although a spokesperson said that efforts would be made to try and relocate them to other jobs. An anonymous member of staff told Your Local Guardian, "We were all really shocked . . . There are not any other book shops around apart from W H Smith. We need a bit more variety, not less."
The spokesperson was unable to comment on the reasons for the closure.
