It's just been announced that Waterstones will be opening a new shop in Wimbledon in the Autumn.
The new shop will be at 40-42 The Broadway opposite The Piazza (currently Halfords).
Earlier this year hundreds of people signed our petition calling on Waterstones and WH Smith to open new shops after they were kicked out of their old premises.
This evening, James Daunt, the Chief Exec of Waterstones asked us to pass on this message to everyone who signed the petition -
"Thank you! We are very pleased to be coming back, and especially pleased to have a brand new shop. Sometimes one step back leads to two steps forward; we much look forward to welcoming everyone back!"
