BLACKWELL'S Bookshop at Westgate will reopen this weekend.

The bookshop in the city's shopping centre has been closed since the nationwide lockdown was imposed in March.

Manager Charlie Young said: "We're very pleased to be throwing open the door at Blackwell's Westgate once again.

"Our booksellers have been reading away while we've been closed and they are back with brilliant recommendations for fantastic books to share.

"Customers and booksellers' safety is foremost in our minds and we'll be doing all we can to keep everyone safe."

To mark the reopening a free paperback (up to £10) will be offered to anyone who spends £50 in the shop this weekend.

Oxford's oldest bookseller, Blackwell's, has three branches in the city.

The flagship branch on Broad Street reopened at the end of lockdown in June.

The Art & Poster shop welcomed customers back last month.

Blackwell's at Westgate will be open this weekend from 10 to 6 on Saturday and 11 to 5 on Sunday.

The store is located on the Upper Ground level, adjacent to John Lewis.
