Welcome to Walkers Bookshops and thank you for finding us online!

My father started Walkers way back in 1972 in Oakham before opening his second shop in Stamford in 1978. Since then we have been beavering away, serving our local communities with news, books, cards, Thorntons, gifts and more.

Apart from a brief spell away at university I have always worked in the business and lived locally. Over the years I have come to realise that it really is a privilege to work on our local High Street in such a beautiful area.

We love helping our customers, both old and new and it is quite humbling to think that some have been shopping with us since we opened nearly 50 years ago!

I look forward to welcoming you into one of our shops soon, but in the meantime, if I can help you with anything at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch through my personal e-mail address timwalker@walkersbookshops.co.uk
