SAVE THE LAST DECENT BOOKSHOP IN WOOD GREEN! sign now

We, the local residents of Haringey are dismayed and disappointed to learn of your plans to close down the Wood Green branch of Waterstones and re-open it as a branch of H and M. We have long enjoyed the great service and choice of books that Waterstones in Wood Green offers. We sincerely hope that you will listen to the voices of Haringey residents who care passionately about the cultural resources available to this area. If this bookshop disappears from Wood Green High Street it will leave a hugely damaging cultural void in its wake. We do not want to live in an endless parade of mobile phone shops and cheap clothing stores. Waterstones has provided a much-needed oasis in a literary desert. Please either reconsider your plans or open another branch in this area. Wood Green needs bookshops not more clothes shops!

    This is very sad indeed, as there are so few bookshops in Harringay.

    This is the only decent book shop in the area and I am shocked that it is closing - as a student this shop has been a useful resource & the staff have been helpful ordering books etc.

    This is a crime as it is another example of choice disappearing, I don't want to have just the books that the supermarket get a good deal on and I don't want to have to order books off the net. Some of the best books that I have ever resd were impulse buy

    It was a lovely Ottakers, it would be a shame if the merger meant Waterstones now closed it.

    I use the bookshop quite regularly and would really miss it if I had to go into central London every time I needed a book. I will be very disappointed with Waterstones as a company if this closure goes ahead.

    You are about to take away one of the few reasons for visiting Wood Green Shopping City. It's always been such a great local resource.
