At long last,
a bookstore
is coming
to Old Town
Warrenton!
The Open
Book is slated
to open on
Main Street
next to Great
Harvest Bread
Company. A
soft opening is
tentatively set
for March 16 at 11:30 a.m. (featuring fellow
Main Street business owner and author Brian
Noyes of Red Truck Bakery), with a grand
opening in the afternoon of March 22.
A long-time dream of owners Cammie Fuller
and Rachel Sirene, the two women, who
have served as the librarian and director of
curriculum at St. James' Episcopal School
respectively, began talking about the idea
of opening a bookstore several years ago.
The timing hadn't been right, however, until
recently.
The Open Book:
Read All About It!
FOCUS
on business
Cammie Fuller & Rache Sirene
"I often had people tell me that we needed a
bookstore," Cammie says. "We got a sense it
was something that the community wanted--
and we wanted it too!" At the end of the
20172018 school year, she left St. James
to research the idea. This led her to learn
that despite being a challenging business,
bookstores that tie into their communities can
be successful.
What will eager customers find in the shop?
Cammie notes that 30% of the inventory will
be dedicated to children's literature, from pre-
readers through middle school-aged titles.
The remaining stock will cover a wide range
of genres that appeal to broader audiences.
"Every reader matters," Cammie says. "We
want to know what the community is looking
for in a bookstore." They have conducted
Facebook polls, gaining insight on what
people want to read, and they encourage
people to share their ideas.
Like any good bookstore, The Open Book
will feature cozy spots to sit and read, and
Cammie and Rachel are planning events
too, including author visits, story time, writing
programs, and more. And yes, it will feature
e-readers and ecommerce too, which means
anything found on Amazon can be ordered
just as easily through the shop--while
keeping the sale local! Find them now on
Facebook (search Old Town Open Book), and
in person later this month!
