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

Here's the Ground Floor ready to go (do you like our book pillar?)...

...to the Mezzanine - for History, Art, Travel, Education and whole lot more

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!
