Walkers bookshop, Market Harborough, closing down


Man flu has kept me largely indoors since Christmas, but on one of my rare excursions I was sorry to see that the Walkers bookshop in the town has a closing down sale.

It is a small shop that sells new books and also has a Thornton's chocolate franchise. In short, it has been a godsend for the present-buyer in a hurry.

The Harborough Mail explains that rent negotiations with the new owners of St Mary's Place have fallen through. There are still other Walkers bookshops in the East Midlands.
