A NEW shop is set to open in a historic Hereford street.

Rossiter Books has planned to open a new shop in Church Street.

The business already has five bookshops in and around Herefordshire, with locations in Ross-on-Wye, Leominster, Malvern, Monmouth and Cheltenham.

The shops are run by Andy and Victoria Rossiter, a husband-and-wife team of book lovers.

Mr Rossiter used to work at the national chain Waterstones, and at Ottakars, before setting up his own book shop, while Mrs Rossiter used to be a secondary school teacher.

The shops sell books, cards, stationery and more.


Rossiter revealed the upcoming opening of its new Hereford shop via social media, writing: "Coming soon... Bookshop number six in Church Street, Hereford."

Rossiter Books also hosts events at its bookshops, like book signings and readings, as well as running local book groups for readers to get together.

Church Street in Hereford is home to several independent businesses, and is near the city's historic cathedral.
