Words set to shut up shop

EDINBURGH bookshop Beyond Words is set to close due to falling sales and rising rent.

Owners of the store, on Cockburn Street, said they would continue to sell books on their website and over the phone.

The shop's final day is earmarked for the middle of July, and a closing-down sale has already begun.
