We have some wonderful news: we have an official opening date of Monday, 12th December! We are so excited to confirm that our bookshop will be open just in time for Christmas, and we will be there for all of your gifting needs in the run up to the big day.
A little bit about us: we are an independent bookstore opening in Manchester, which sells new books for adult and children. However, we are a little different than your average bookshop.
We are a not-for-profit, Community Interest Company with the aim of combatting social isolation and loneliness. We believe that bookshops can play a significant role in fostering a sense of community and helping those isolated or feeling lonely. Every penny you spend in our store, or on bookshop.org, goes towards our mission.
We would like you to leave our bookshop feeling better connected to the community. In time, we will have a book club, chatty cafe days, and many other initiatives that will alleviate social isolation and loneliness in a practical way. Every book sold makes a difference.
We are thrilled to welcome you on our opening day, but please bear in mind that this will be the first day for our new booksellers and we would appreciate it if you could be patient and kind with us while we find our feet.
See you in a couple of weeks!
