Foyles to open in Grand Central Birmingham!

Friday 23rd January, 2015

It’s a big year for our friends at Grand Central Birmingham as they prepare for the launch this Autumn. With preparations well underway, another retailer – Foyles, the award-winning independent bookshop chain, has announced it is to open a new branch at the city’s new £150 million premium retail destination.

A particularly exciting time for the retailer as Foyles Grand Central Birmingham will be the second bookshop outside of London to be opened by the family-owned business in recent years, following the opening of Foyles Bristol Cabot Circus in March 2011. At just around 4,300 sq ft, including space for goods-in and a toilet, it will be similar in size and style to existing Foyles branches in Westfield Stratford City, London Waterloo Station and Royal Festival Hall.

Sam Husain, CEO of Foyles, said: “Grand Central Birmingham fulfils all of our criteria for a new store – a landmark retail destination with high footfall and a quality retail mix, including our neighbours John Lewis. We look forward to selling books to new customers in the West Midlands, whether they be local residents, visitors to Grand Central Birmingham or travellers passing through New Street Station.”

Grand Central Birmingham is inevitably going to make a huge impact on the city and we’re very much looking forward to the launch this September!
