Foyles to open new branch at Westfield Stratford City

13th June 2011

Foyles, Britain's largest independent bookshop chain and twice UK Bookseller of the Year in 2008 and 2010, is to open its seventh branch at Westfield Stratford City later this year.

The new shop will be in Europe's largest urban shopping centre, next door to the site of the 2012 Olympics. With over 1.9million square feet of retail and leisure space and home to over 300 shops anchored by John Lewis, Waitrose, Marks & Spencer and a 17-screen Vue cinema, the new bookshop will trade from over 5,000 square feet. It will be situated on the ground floor, with an additional mezzanine space.

The shop will have over 25,000 titles featuring a range of fiction, children's, sport, travel, business, art and more.

Foyles CEO, Sam Husain, commented: 'Our aim is to get books to as many readers as possible, so we're very excited about the opportunity to reach book lovers in a part of London that is new to us. Westfield's vision for cultural experience, education and youth engagement makes the Stratford City centre, adjacent to the 2012 Olympic site, a particularly strong fit.

Bill Giouroukos, Director of Operations at Westfield, said: 'Foyles is an extremely important part of our overall retail mix and we are delighted that they will be opening their seventh UK branch at Westfield Stratford City, building on the successful partnership we have established together at Westfield London.'
