WH Smith PLC Timeline


WH Smith to focus on travel and survive

Toys R Us, High & Mighty, Jacamo, Simply Be, GAME, Staples, MFI, Athena, Unipart, Tie Rack, Blockbuster, Barratts (shoes), Jessops, JJB Sports, Shoe Express and many other famous names have all disappeared from the UK High Street or retail estates. WH Smith has clung on

WH Smith delivers more of the same

The retailer is trying out a new format on its high street estate - one where, perhaps, it fits threadbare carpets from the off rather than letting them become so - but the main focus remains on its travel-hub outlets
The retailer said its new store opening programme was on track in the UK and internationally, reporting “good sales” across all channels.
