Waterstones is opening a new store in Brentwood, Essex, next month following the closure of its branch there earlier this year.
The new shop will open on 13th August in a former branch of Maplin on the high street. The old Waterstones Brentwood branch was closed in March after lease talks failed.
A spokesperson said: “Since the former shop’s regrettable closure during the last lockdown, we have actively sought a new home in the area and Friday 13th August 2021 will mark the opening of Waterstones Brentwood.
“Occupying the high street’s former Maplin site and situated only metres from our previous position, our Brentwood bookshop will be once again a great destination for local readers, and its bookselling team, under the leadership of bookshop manager Paul Watson, can’t wait to welcome their customers back.”
