Colin Wilson reports that Chater's, the UK's leading motor and motorsport bookseller, is heading back to Hook, Hampshire, to newly refurbished premises which will increase the company's floor space and include a customer showroom. The move will take place on Monday 10 October.
The family business has served motor racing and automotive enthusiasts since 1957, attending around 60 events across Europe each year and providing a lifeline to specialist authors and niche publishers. It holds in excess of 10,000 specialist book and DVD titles in stock at any one time.
Chater's Managing Director, Clive Stroud, says the decision to relocate to London Road, Hook, was taken to strengthen customer relations and provide a showroom “where a warm welcome awaits, along with a dedicated area to sit, talk and browse, as well as ample parking."
Chater's Motoring Booksellers will relocate to Unit 25/26, Murrell Green Business Park, London Road, Hook, RG27 9GR. The showroom will be open each weekday, from 9am to 5.30pm. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
