A well-known Rugby bookshop is looking for new premises once again.

For years Hunts Bookshop was located in the High Street before moving to smaller premises in Chapel Street in recent years.

From there the business moved to the basement of Summersault Deli in Lawrence Sheriff Street earlier this year.

But Kelvin and Pauline Hunt said this week that things had not worked out and they closed the shop at the end of August.

The business is now being run from home temporarily.

Mrs Hunt said: “Rugby has always had a independent bookshop and it is part of the town’s community. Kelvin and I work hard to keep the shop going we would hate to see it go.”

The couple are now looking to moved the bookshop back into the High Street.
