L.R. was one cranky fcuker though. I used to hate shopping there tbh!
Shame about Waterstones. An excellent shop. I used to love going in there to buy or browse when I lived in Cork.

Shame alright, I suppose with LR and Waterstones both closing it'll allow Eason to increase its prices even more.

I was actually only thinking recently about how I'd like one of those artistic prints that were in the window of LR.

But I suppose me thinking about buying something doesn't do much for their balance sheet.

Agreed about Easons.
When Waterstones opened it was a "breath of fresh air" for book buyers/lovers. L.Rs. was a place you'd go for schoolbooks and not a lot else. Easons used to be just sell what they could eg. books, pens, stationery, magazines, sweets and records. More like a bazzar than a shop in some aspects.

Handy to have a place where you can pick up a Playboy, a copy of the Farmers Journal, a highlighter, and a Kit kat all under the same roof though.

And I think you really had to love books to shop in LR. It always felt a bit all over the place, the only reason I'd go there if it was for something specific that only they had.

Waterstones is just so user friendly and organised. It'll be a shame to see it go.
