I'm surprised Western From Books lasted so long being such a specialised store he did very well, I'm assuming its not been empty long?

I believe most of their business was online and was doing well, but personal circumstances led to closure. I'm not exactly sure but the shop has been empty at least a year. The former little boutique and the hairdresser on the corner of that block are also empty. The wine lodge is opening again but has been shut for ages. The recession bit deeply.

That's a shame MB1 as it was a good place to browse around although I only bought a few items there. The empty store problem is not confined to Ware but here in NZ too I have always though it very brave to open a store but its not possible to support them all.

I agree. I also only bought a small handful of books from them, but browsing there was great.

I should wait until we know who is going in there Barzey!! I just hope it isn't another nail bar/hair/beauty salon or estate agent.
