Waterstone's to close Milton Keynes branch
22.11.11 | Lisa Campbell
Waterstone’s has told staff it is closing its Milton Keynes branch.
Staff were informed yesterday of its forthcoming closure, with a final day to be disclosed. It follows the closure of its Lancaster University store last Friday (18th November) after its lease expired. The bookseller is understood to be in consultation with staff in both branches about possible redeployment.
Meanwhile, the retailer has opened a pop-up shop in Dorking for the Christmas period. It replaces its branch that closed last month although the bookseller is hoping to find a site for a new permanent store in the town.
