Waterstones Blackpool will reopen after a member of staff was killed by a falling shop sign.
A Waterstones spokesperson told the Blackpool Gazette: “Waterstones Blackpool will reopen again after repair works to the building that will be undertaken shortly. We will confirm the date of reopening once these are underway.”
Margaret Sheridan, a bookseller at the shop, was killed last month after being hit by a falling sign.
Local residents had reported high winds in the Bank Hey Street area at the time of the incident, where the Waterstones Blackpool branch is based.
A spokesperson said at the time: “Waterstones confirms that a tragic accident at its Blackpool shop has resulted in the death of one of its booksellers. Margaret Sheridan was a much loved and well respected colleague. We offer our deepest condolences to her family.”
Police carried out a joint investigation with the local authority but no charges were brought forward.
