Kobo is thrilled to announce that WHSmith customers in the UK will now have access to a personalized signature Kobo experience. Across the pond, 100 Kobo-branded experiential shops will launch within WHSmith High Street retail locations this year. The premier retail giant recently trialed “Kobo Centres” in some of its larger stores and due to an overwhelmingly positive response, Kobo and WHSmith decided to expand Kobo shops to other key locations.

With a dedicated team of Kobo experts, customers will be guided through their eReading adventure every step of the way—from activating their Kobo accounts, choosing the right device for their personal reading styles, and browsing the Kobo eBookstore in search of their next great read.

Kobo is truly committed to offering customers a tailored country experience that appeals to unique cultural interests and tastes of that country. It has had tremendous success both through its localized online eBookstores that offer content in 60 languages across 190 countries, as well as through its network of premier retail partners across the globe, including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, the Netherlands, the United States, France, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, and Hong Kong.

Starting today, customers can enjoy great Kobo deals—available at all WHSmith stores and online at www.whsmith.co.uk:
