We would like to register our support for the campaign to retain the Chambers office in Edinburgh. Chambers books, notably The Chambers Dictionary, have a distinctive quality that is due in no small part to their Scottish roots. We urge Chambers's parent company Hachette UK to reconsider its decision which could bring an end to Chambers's 190-year presence in Scotland and threatens the continued existence of the Chambers name.
Note added 22 December 2009: Sadly a buyer was not found and the Edinburgh office closed on 18 December 2009. The staff and supporters of Chambers would like to thank everyone who signed the petition for their support.
