The new Foyles flagship store was unveiled on London’s Charing Cross Road in July, in the iconic former Central Saint Martin’s building. With customers hailing it ‘the future of the modern bookstore’, I decided it was time to see the store for myself.
I visited the store with trepidation that it might have lost some of Foyles’ charm in the quest for modernisation, whilst simultaneously compromising the quirkiness of the original Saint Martin's building.
