Waterstones is returning to Watford after four years.
The company will open a branch in High Street, trading from over two floors, on Saturday 24th September, after vacating its last premises in the city on Christmas Eve 2012.
The opening next month follows the news earlier this week that the company is set to open a branch in Yarm, Teeside, this weekend.
Sean Farrell, cluster leader at Waterstones, said: “We are so pleased that we are finally able to bring a Waterstones bookshop back to Watford. A great number of customers have expressed terrific support for our return and we are sure that our new shop, with its elegant design, a book selection tailored for the people of Watford and top-notch customer service will be everything they hope for.
“Our booksellers are incredibly excited to be involved in this brand new venture to bring a specialist bookshop to Watford’s high street.”
