In pictures: Our new Westfield Stratford City shop
10th November 2011
Our newest shop at Westfield Stratford City opened its doors yesterday. As well as stocking 22,000 titles over two floors, we think it's quite a handsome addition to the Foyles empire: we're really rather proud of it, especially the spectacular Children's Department. We hope you'll enjoy shopping there as much as we're already enjoying being there.
The very first book sold was a children's picture book, Mouldy Monsters by Anna Laura Cantone. And our bestselling book on our first day was Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson.
So, like proud parents, we want to show off the newest addition to the Foyles family: here are some pictures, first of the shop as it took shape and then all ready for our first customers.
Here's the empty shell just a couple of weeks ago
Construction was soon well underway
The first boxes of books come out onto the shopfloor
The main tills taking shape...
...and once they were done. We rather like this!
Here's the Ground Floor ready to go (do you like our book pillar?)...
...leading up the stairs (there's a lift too)...
...to the Mezzanine - for History, Art, Travel, Education and whole lot more
Looking down from the Mezzanine at some of our first morning's customers
The view from outside - you'd never know the window display collapsed an hour before opening!
We hope you like the look of it. Come and visit us in our new home soon!
