David Headley, co-founder and m.d. of London's Goldsboro Books, has revealed plans to open a shop in Brighton.
Based in 22b Ship Street, Brighton, in the historic Lanes, it will open within the next two weeks and also be called Goldsboro Books. It will supply a range of brand-new signed first editions, as well as collectable items.
Initially, the bookshop will be staffed by the current Goldsboro Books team, but more staff will be hired in 2021.
Headley said: "I’m delighted to be opening a second branch of Goldsboro Books. As part of our 21st birthday this year, we had always planned to expand. This year’s unexpected events meant that we had to delay slightly, but we were determined to make it work.
"I’m so pleased to be setting up shop in Brighton – as well as being an exciting creative hub, it’s where I now live very happily with my husband, having got married earlier this year. We’ve collected the keys and we hope to open on Saturday 12th December – my wonderful team are working flat out to make that day! I can’t wait to throw open the doors to our new customers."
