Final chapter for The Bookshop, Kirkstall

For 25 years Roy and Pippa Brook have bought and sold second-hand collectable and antiquarian books from their landmark The Bookshop at 10 Commercial Road, Kirkstall, writes Debby Dean.

But on Wednesday, 4th May, this will sadly come to an end as the last page is turned and their door closes for the final time.

From today, including Bank Holiday Monday, any remaining books in the property are being given away free. There will be no limits on how many titles each customer can take but it is advisable to turn up with your own bags/boxes etc.Trading hours are 10am until 4pm each day.

The owners would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to local customers for their support over the years.

They advise that as the shop is small and likely to be very busy it would be preferable for people to adopt a ‘pot luck’ approach to their selections and to be patient in times of heavy footfall.

Who knows what treasured tomes you may come away with?

The Bookshop Kirkstall will still continue to trade online with a full inventory of books and collectables.

Find them at Amazon and Abebooks.
