Every year the holidays are important to small businesses, this year is more extreme – it is make or break for so many. Please support our local businesses and restaurants this season. That one takeout order or gift card you purchase may be what they need to survive another month and employ their staff through the holidays. Thank you for your continued support of the Valley’s local businesses!

Our Grand Opening is upon us! Join us for a socially distant ribbon cutting, Tuesday October 6, 2020 at 1pm.
Before that exciting day, however, we are having a soft opening Friday 10/2 – Sunday 10/4. Feel free to stop by and help us work out the kinks and show us what we forgot 🙂
We are ready to make you feel at home with great coffee, pastries, bagels and of course, books!
Painting is done, windows are in, electricity and plumbing nearly finished…Just need to paint the floor and move everything in!!
Ok, ok – final post for the day, but I would be remiss if I didn’t save the biggest shout out to our building, the people who run it and our neighbors – who I STRONGLY encourage you to visit!. We feel very deeply about our community and the outpouring of support I have seen for local businesses blows me away. Stop by and visit these awesome businesses (if I forgot someone, please yell at me!):
And not to be forgotten – in our back building, The Brickyard, 142 Pleasant St
We want to make sure we give kudos to our amazing partners, so I will add new ones as they come up. We strongly encourage you to patronize or visit the websites of these amazing businesses!
