The former small intersports was a treasure amoung our community and i want to congratulate them for making it into the old Woolworths store.
I pondered endlessly about what would be the perfect shop to replace woolworths..
i thought hmv? no too modern for lewes..
Bills? no we cant let Bills buy the whole street..
a good clothes shop for men? Bone and Fat Face stole that gig.
But when i saw intersports were moving in it just clicked, the perfect replacement in my eyes, and to take the halfords route and put a bike shop within the store is genius, lewes has long needed a good bike shop.
I was curious if this is the common opinion? Is the move across the road for intersports a good move?

I'm not so fussed about Intersports as I was happy with it before but I am very glad of the bike shop. At last I have managed to get a puncture repair kit in Lewes. I'm slightly worried that there might be another opening up (or opened up already?), opposite the law courts in the shop vacated by the motor shop. I hope thidesolatees not jeorpordise the survival of both of them.

I wouldve preferred a Waterstones or something..the second hand books are covered but other than that there is nowhere to buy new books! tis shocking...that stationers on school hill just sells the tripe you get at the airport, so you is ok if you like to read books about sheryl Cole etc

I know what your saying about their book selection, but they can order specific books in for your acquired taste.

I believe the book shop you're looking for is known as a "library".

The library stock is very limited too. If you want to read, say, the Booker shortlist books, you're likely to have wait for months (I once asked after the progress of my 3-month old reservation on a shortlisted novel, and was told that I was now 44th on the list and that there were only 6 copies in the whole county!).
It's shockingly underresourced imo, and they seem to concentrate on potboilers.
