Foyles to open store in Bristol's Cabot Circus

26th January 2011

Foyles is to open a sixth bookshop this spring when it launches a new store at Bristol's Cabot Circus shopping centre.

The 5,500 sq ft Foyles at Quakers Friars store will be spread across two floors and hold more than 13,000 titles when it opens in early March.

While the first floor will be dedicated to books, the second is likely to house a performance area and cafe, as well as the shop's back offices.

Sam Husain, chief executive of Foyles, said he is 'thrilled' that the chain will be launching a new bookstore in Bristol.

'When we won the Bookselling Company of the Year in May, we were praised for our "big values, bold ideas and bookselling prowess" and we are really looking forward to sharing that expertise with the people of Bristol,' he commented.

Richard Akers, managing director for retail at Land Securities, which co-owns Cabot Circus, also claimed that the new bookshop will be a 'unique addition' to the shopping centre.

In October last year, Foyles opened its fifth store - the 1,300 sq ft 'Booktique' - at One New Change in the City of London. The bookshop holds over 6,000 titles, while its customers can also order from the flagship Charing Cross Road store, which carries almost 200,000 works.
