More exciting news for Upshur Street in Petworth – a new bookstore is coming next door to (from owners of) Petworth Citizen in the former Hair Impressions space. From an email:

“Join our Bookstore Founders Club and help open our new bookstore!

Slated to open later this Summer, Upshur Books is a small, independent bookstore with a strong connection to the Petworth community. The bookstore will focus on literary fiction and poetry, local authors, art books, and independent publications, and will also host free literary and cultural events. The bookstore will complement the thriving retail district that is growing on Upshur Street in Petworth.

To help raise funds for the new Petworth community bookstore, we’ve put together an innovative funding program. By joining the Founders Club, you receive store credit and additional discounts on future purchases.

Click here for more information and to sign up.

We also have a full-time position open for the Manager of the Bookstore listed here.”
