    First to Review

    This is a new branch of W H Smith in the extended South Terminal lounge at Gatwick Airport, near the Wetherspoons Pub and Prêt a Manger, on the first floor. (There's another branch on the Ground Floor by the entrance to the gates).

    It sells what you'd expect of Smiths  newspapers, magazines, confectionery and a limited range of stationery and books, all aimed at the travel market. Interestingly, though, they also have an extensive range of sandwiches and snacks in a long refrigerator, so clearly their lease doesn't stop them competing from the various other food outlets around: a good thing if you want to stock up before getting on a budget flight (some of their sarnies are under £2).

    The only downer is that the tills at the end are a little cramped, so on my recent visit one daydreaming 5-year old sitting on the floor managed to block everyone's exit

    Ok it's thursday evening, it's really busy and I am tired but there must be an easier way to buy a magazine and a bottle of water.
    Empty shelves, lack of staff and a long queue through the store didn't leave a good impression.
    The store on the first floor is much better than the onr on the way to the gates.
