WHSmith store opening delayed
THE opening of a new WHSmith store in Nailsea has been delayed but is a certainty to happen, according to the man responsible for letting it.
The stationery store signed up to become a part of the Crown Glass Place shopping centre in October and had been expected to open around Easter time.
But concerns over whether the store would open were raised this week when a new letting sign was placed outside the unit – which was previously owned by furnishing business Cargo.
However the precinct’s letting agent Ian Thompson said the sign referred to a small part of the unit which WHSmith will not be leasing otherwise the store would be too big.
He said; “The reason for the delay is that WHSmith needs to install a service lift between the ground floor and the first floor storage area. This wasn’t ordered until everything was signed and it has to be purpose-built and these things can take weeks.”
No new expected opening time has been announced.
