Our Neighbors at the Bookstore
One of the best parts of being at 477 N Main Street is that we are right next to The Bookstore. Shannon and Gail (and Jane before them) have been wonderful neighbors. If you haven't been in there, you really should. They have a great selection and the best recommendations.
What made you want to take over the bookstore?
For Gail: Her daughter started working here when she was 14 and she loved what it taught her in her first job -- huge personal responsibility, appreciation of customer loyalty, and a clear demonstration of why small locally owned stores, especially bookstores, are an important part of our town. In turn, she began to feel strongly about the value of The Bookstore staying here for many years.
For Shannon, (whose daughter also worked in the store through high school), it was a strong belief in the importance of books, and independent bookstores, and wanting to make sure our community continued to have a bookstore when Jane retired.
