The Works book shop is leaving

My info is a bit ago was that it had agreement for a double front on church st near clintons.It was about the same time millets was around coming.

BUT DO SPOT NEW RETAILER COMING ON A FEW WINDOWS. Maybe this is another quiet move around.

We will,have to rely on ROBBOB ?

For many reasons, not the least of which is the fact that I was hoping to publish another social-history type of book about growing up in the early 1950s St Helens (with an emphasis on the Dentons Green and St Helens Junction areas), I hope that whoever buys Wardleworths keeps it going as a book shop

The Works as advised by me some time ago. The Works moving at last to 32 Church st. Next to Clintons.

The Council are hoping more move from St.Mary's Market so the dont have to oay.This is due to them Redeveloping it in the near future.

Alan did you notice it was only orders online and not in the shop?Whilst I appreciate the moans. These are no more prevelant than via other online businesses. We have used the shops many times and for the price good value.

We bought as an example - a boxed art set £10 marked down to £8. Art sets in other shops at least £20. It was checked and for us was excellent value fof a 7 yr old . 

As an example we wanted to buy some STEM  activities for our young gcs in USA. Remembering they are 7 and 8 we looked online and found they were at least £15 each with good activities. So we spotted some small sets for around £5+(on offer) and yes they were only simple starters. You decide yourself over price and quality.

As the law - Let the buyer beware!

ALAN Why dont you offer to sell your book in a Hospice with some profit going to them?

There's going to be nothing left.

The council are happy for any business to move out.They dont have any expense if they do.  They are going to sort out the whole part? Not bad after spending I believe over £50000  on the toilets.
