It is with genuine regret that we have taken the very difficult decision to close our charity bookshop in Tring.
We have reached this decision based on a number of factors including rising costs, the lease coming to an end, and the expense that would be associated with a re fit in order to bring the shop up to the standards required.
We realise that this decision will be very disappointing for the dedicated team of volunteers and staff, some of whom have worked in the shop for many years, and want to assure them that it is not one that has been taken lightly. We also want to sincerely thank everyone – including our customers – for their loyalty and support over the years. However as a charity we must ensure that our shops remain viable and unfortunately this is not the case for the Tring bookshop.
We would like to take this opportunity to reassure people that there is no threat to the other Tring shop. When the bookshop closes there will be a book section established in this shop. We also regularly sell books in our eBay shop and we have a shop solely dedicated to selling books in Princes Risborough.
