Bunch of Grapes To Re-Open …

Leave a comment

According to an article in today’s Vineyard Gazette, the Bunch of Grapes bookstore has been sold.  The new owner, Dawn Braasch, plans to open in mid-November in rented space at the old Beadniks warehouse on Church Street.

Here’s a bit of what the article has to say …

At about 650 square feet, the temporary store will carry what Ms. Braasch called “the best of what we had in the main store: bestsellers, Island books, children’s books, along with the top categories of what we sold the most of in the main bookstore, and cards, magazines and newspapers . . . And what we don’t have on the floor we can easily get in two or three days from our suppliers’ warehouses, so I hope that the community will support us.”

The temporary bookstore will open sometime in mid-November, Ms. Braasch said, keeping the same hours as the main store did, Saturdays to Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Fridays from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m.

“We want to do it as a show of good faith to the community that we are still very much alive and want to become a vital part of the downtown economy again,” she said. “This is a way of providing a service to the community through the holidays, through the winter when maybe other bookstores won’t stay open,” she said.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
