As of what I know to day this is the situation in the various cities with ex-SPCK Shops. Can people add any more? Phelim
Chichester – running under Chichester Shop Management Company
Durham – running under Durham Cathedral Shop Management Company. Phil Brewer has been to shop but has avoided last two Dean and Chapter meetings.
Sheffield – shop closed and locks changed due to unpaid rent (reported on spckwatch’s blog on livejournal)
Hereford – fully independent
Leicester – fully independent
Worcester – appears to be open but no more details
Winchester – not sure whether this is independent or not
Lincoln – shop closed but gap filled by Unicorn Tree Books
York – shop closed but gap being filled by St Paul’s Multi Media
Birmingham – shop closed, part of gap filled by a market stall
Canterbury – closed
London – closed
Chester – ENC’s contact address but no knews of anyone is there to answer mail. Last I heard was that shop was open two days a weel.
Carlisle – as far as I am aware this shop is closed with the building back in the hands of the landlord (Cathedral)
Bristol – shop closed.
Newcastle – shop was being run by agency staff but no news as to whether this is still the case.
