WH SMITH KIOSK OPENS IN SALFORD IN 2011!!!
Break out the bubbly… Get the flags out… Call in the Mayor to open it… WH Smith is opening a kiosk at MediaCityUK. And Peel Media, which owns the place, actually sent out a press release about it. Apparently it's going to be selling "newspapers and magazines, stationery, books, confectionery and drinks".
Bryan Gray, Chairman of Peel Media, obviously couldn't contain his joy either as he commented… "WH Smith are a well-known high street brand and we are pleased that they will be serving the needs of visitors, residents and employees at MediaCityUK."
For those of a nervous disposition please look away now… but the kiosk is going to be 1000 square feet! That's just over 30feet x 30feet! And one eightieth of the total retail and leisure space available in Phase 1 of MediaCityUK.
The kiosk will be located in the `open centre' so we will all be able to visit it too! I'm sure this is one of the reasons why Nicky Campbell has decided to re-locate to Salford… but he'll have to get in the queue for a job with Smiths… We were here first!
