A branch of Smiths is a fixture of practically every high street up and down the country. The chain sells stationery, magazines, books, greeting cards, gifts, videos, DVDs, CDs, computer games and electronics. The range of stationary, cards and magazines is impressive, and it offers good value for books, music, films and games, although the selection tends to be limited.
