The WH Smith corporate website indicates that the company currently has twenty-four locations in Australia. This does not includes the Wild Crad and Gift franchise business purchased earlier this year.

Just a few years ago WH Smith had three stores. This is a business on the move in Australia. More here.

    What impact do you think a corporate store would have if it opened directly opposite a newsagent in a major shopping centre?

    Anyone else had a store open close by? what impact did it have?

    Daniel, the impact would depend on the type of WH Smith store and the focus of the newsagency it opened opposite. Without those two bits of information it is impossible to answer with any reasonable authority.
