A FORMER roadside restaurant has been transformed into a huge bargain bookshop, which opens to the public this weekend.
Bookstore at Oakmere will open at 9am on Saturday at the old Little Chef restaurant on the A556, on the edge of Delamere Forest.
The venture is the brainchild of businessman David McPhee, whose successful bookstore at Buxton, Derbyshire, has enabled him to expand and invest in Mid Cheshire.
“All the books are brand new, and 95% of them will be half-price or less,” said David, who is originally from Chesterfield.
The 3,000sq ft premises will stock more than 20,000 cut-price titles, he added.
It will also sell music CDs from £2.99 and ‘an extensive range’ of greeting cards.
Bookstore at Oakmere will be open from 9.30am-5.30pm on Monday-Saturday and will also open on Sundays.
Until August 16 the store is offering a £2 discount on total purchases of £10 or more with a leaflet available online at www.chestertourist.com/delamere.
