Bookbound, Ann Arbor, 2013

Opening Bookbound

Counting up to 10,000

by Sally Mitani

From the September, 2013 issue

In early August, Megan Blackshear said she and her husband, Peter, "are receiving books. We'll open the store when we receive the 10,000 books we've ordered." She was guessing Bookbound would cross that threshold in late August, but at any rate, they're committed to a September 7 grand opening of the 2,000-square-foot space in the Courtyard Shops on Plymouth.

Megan says they will specialize in children's books and that Peter knows the bargain book business--he comes from Borders corporate and was once its bargain-book buyer. (Outside tables stacked with beautifully made, no-longer-expensive remainders lured customers into the downtown store for decades.) The Courtyard space they're moving into is particularly dear to Megan's heart because it used to be B. Ella Bridal. "I bought my wedding dress there," two and a half years ago. "It's not why we picked the space, but in the back of my mind, I love that fact."

Bookbound, 1792 Plymouth (Courtyard Shops), 369-4345.    (end of article)
