All Aboard! New Foyles Branch at Waterloo Station
U.K. bookshop chain Foyles will open a seventh branch, at London's Waterloo Station, this fall. The Bookseller reported that the 3,000 square foot location "will have a ground floor and mezzanine and serve the 125 million customers who pass through the station on an annual basis."
