Welcome to the website of Urmston Bookshop which was opened by Peter and Frances Hopkins in 2010. It has proved to be a great addition to Urmston town centre. In June 2016 the shop changed hands and I, Sandra Foy, took over. With the help of Kathryn Banner , who is also working in the shop with me, and my husband, Kevin Foy and son Mark Foy, we hope to continue the good work that has already been done.
We stock a range of titles for both adults and children together with specialist cards, stationery, gifts and many other educational toys and games.
Our bijou(that’s another word for small!) cafe serves a variety of hot and cold drinks and also some delicious home-made cakes and cookies.
We also have a meeting room with an SMART Interactive board. This room is used for all different events from story times, author visits, book clubs to photographic exhibitions. Several schools have also used the room for book based staff meeting and in-service training.
If there is anything that you want from your bookshop let us know and if we can, we will try our upmost to accomodate your wishes. Urmston Bookshop is your shop.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
