After a couple of years without a decent book shop, today Billericay High Street
regulars saw the opening of W H Smith's new store. The cutting of the ribbon
took place just a couple of hours ago and I found the team to be friendly and
knowledgeable. Lots of great offers in time for Mother's Day. Here we are
celebrating WHS's first morning's trading and I include a pic of super young
sales assistant Ellie with her Mum who was the store's first customer. We have a
goodly crew of authors in the town these days and already some of our books are
on sale. Here is the manager, Rassel in the centre alongside Ellie - just about to cut the ribbon.
