Celebrating A New Chapter For The Cobham Bookshop
Following a period of uncertainty about the future of the Cobham Bookshop, we have great
news to share. A group of local residents have managed to secure a new long term lease on
the premises at 12a Anyards Road in order to keep the much loved shop going which will see an independent bookshop remaining on the High Street for years to come.
Jane Black, a long-time local resident who has spearheaded the campaign is delighted with the outcome, adding :
“The Cobham Bookshop has been an integral part of the High Street for as long as any of us can remember and it would be a sad day for our community if it were ever to close. We are delighted to be playing our part in keeping it open.”
Lou Morana, a fellow Cobham resident, added: “We saw a great groundswell of support for the shop when it looked like it was going to close, and that helped us to believe that it has a long term future in the High Street. We hope to harness that energy going forward and continue to service the needs of all generations of our reading community in the years to
The Bookshop will close for a few days from 31st July for restocking and some minor
maintenance, but it will be business as usual from 6th August.
The shop’s manager, Bryony South said: “We will reopen on Sunday 6th, though our website will remain available throughout, and I’m looking forward to this next chapter in our shop’s life. I am really excited that we have managed to find new owners for the bookshop and look forward to welcoming new and existing customers. Please pop in and say hello!”
