WH Smith Seeking New Headquarters

Shelf Awareness

British bookstore chain WH Smith "is looking to stay in Swindon" and the city "will work with the company to find it a new headquarters," the Advertiser reported, noting that borough council chiefs "say they are delighted" by the decision. The company is looking to move away from its current headquarters on Greenbridge Road, where the "offices have been described as no longer fit for purpose and in a state of disrepair."

A spokesman for WH Smith said: "We can confirm that we are currently in discussion with Swindon Borough Council regarding the possibility of relocating our head office to a building that is more suitable for our needs. If our application to the council is successful we are committed to staying within Swindon. Due to the very early stage of our discussions we are unable to comment any further."
