All throughout the last year, we have been so grateful for our community’s endless encouragement and patience while we worked tirelessly to bring another bookstore to Queens. We are BEYOND excited to finally be able to share this announcement:
After an extensive, and at times grueling, search... we have finally found the storefront for our bookstore! We are so excited to call KEW GARDENS our new home away from home. All of you have been so supportive and encouraging and we couldn't have gotten this far without you.
We have fallen completely in love with our cozy new place on 81-63 Lefferts Blvd and we hope you will love it just as much. We are located near the beloved Kew Gardens Cinema and Potter's Wheel (they’re awesome!). We’ll be easily accessible by bus, train, or LIRR so we are thrilled we’ll get to meet you all in person when you stop by! We are anxious and excited to begin the renovations, which will start very soon.
So, what's the next step?
- If you backed our Kickstarter and you selected a reward that required our storefront: Keep your eyes peeled. We will be sending surveys your way!
- We will be looking out for someone to design our new logo with our store's name, and a mural for our kids section! So if you or someone you know from Queens who can help us with this, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a few samples!
- We will start working on our first huge book order, so if you have always dreamed of being a bookseller for a day and would like to volunteer once we get closer to our opening day, again email us! We love hearing from you :)
As always, we will keep you updated on all our social media. We will share our progress with the renovation and all the little pieces that need to come together for us to finally open this bookstore that has always been for the community. :D
Again, THANK YOU -
Vina, Natalie, Holly.
