The hoarding is about to come down to reveal The Eagle in all its glory. We hope you will find it worth the wait!
WE REOPEN AT OUR NEW ST PETERS STREET HOME ON MONDAY 21st OCTOBER!
Not long now - the shelves are all up and being filled and we're really looking forward to opening the doors. But to get to the doors, there's still a bit of building work to go to make access safe!
A quick update (already inserted below): We hope to open the doors to the new shop some time during the week beginning 7th October.
We had to insert 'some time during the week beginning' to allow us to make sure that ,however exciting he shop is at the moment, it is at least safe for you all to visit!
We are getting so close we can give you some dates!
The last day of trading in Castle Road will be Thursday 3rd October.
The shop will be closed on Friday 4th October and Saturday 5th October - apologies for this.
The first Swan Theatre Poetry Evening of the new season will take place at the new premises at 7pm on Sunday 6th October.
16 - 20 ST PETERS STREET, BEDFORD MK40 2NN
Some time during the week beginning Monday 7th October, the doors will be open for business at St Peters Street. There will be gentle biblio-chaos everywhere as shelves get filled, and boxes unpacked but you will be very welcome to visit us - it will be fun!
Some time in November, teething problems over, we will have the big relaunch!
Well - it has been the worst kept secret of the last few months so I had better reveal some, if not all!
We hope to relocate our shop into exciting new town centre premises in late summer this year.
The new location is in the heart of the town and is HUGE - 5000 square ft at ground floor!
We have great faith in town centres, but we must all accept that they are changing. We believe that this change can be for the good, as there is a marvelous opportunity now for independent businesses to really make their mark, and for town centres up and down the country to regain their identities.
For the last fifty years, it has been impossible to tell from the HIgh Street shops which town you were in. That's going to change. Soon, for instance, people will say Bedford? That's The Eagle Bookshop.
More information to follow very soon!
