The Works

96 Town Square, Basildon SS14 1BX, UK – 01268 520381

Great customer service, staff are always pleasant and it's a well stocked shop. Love the store!

Well the works definitely spent a fair amount of money over the lifetime of my children, but having a book worm and two arty children never come out empty handed but compared with other book stores would be so much more expensive can't grubble

When ever I enter this shop I will see all the information I need and it is very easy to look around. The passageways are aways clear to walk round, and the items I like are easy to reach. The The staff are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend you take a look at all they have as you will be surprised at what there to be found. Good Hunting.

Whsmith best selection of magazines anywhere! Everything else is sadly overpriced - books, stationary and greeting cards. All cheaper online. But it would be a sad day if Whsmith went the same way as so many high street stores & disappeared.
