Waterstones has announced the opening of a new bookshop in Didcot this autumn.

The bookseller will open a 2,500 sq ft bookshop in the town’s Orchard Centre in November.

The bookshop will stock a range of books, stationery and gifts and will host book launches, reading groups and family-friendly activities to celebrate the written word.

Luke Taylor, Waterstones Head of Retail and Bookselling, said: "We are delighted to be opening another shop on the outskirts of Oxford and are hopeful that it will complement nicely its sister shop in Oxford city centre.

"Our bookshop in Oxford has an enthusiastic and dedicated team, and it is from here that we will staff the new shop in order to ensure the residents of Didcot and the surrounding villages are met with knowledgeable and passionate booksellers from the off!"
