DIARY OF A BOOKSTORE DURING COVID-19: Gramercy Books, Bexley, Ohio

What follows is a diary of how COVID-19 has affected one locally owned, independent bookstore located just outside Columbus, Ohio. I started keeping a diary, just to keep track of day-to-day adjustments to this unfolding crisis. It now seems like a useful guide, revealing what one small business is doing to adapt to a pandemic.

The Three C's: COMMUNITY. CURATION. CONVENING.

Harvard Business School professor Ryan Rafaelli spoke to booksellers in Baltimore in late January about how industries, organizations, and business leaders reinvent themselves in the face of radical technological change. After years of research of independent bookstores, he concluded that the indie seller provides a story of hope for community-led businesses through the three C’s.

THE GIFT OF BOOKS!

The Gramercy Books staff has scoured the store! Here’s their list of books for all ages and interests during this holiday season. Don’t forget Bexley Holiday Hop (December 8th) with 25% off all calendars that day, and our December 12th birthday party (we’re 3!!) with 20% off everything in the store, our “grand merci” for your loyal support!

BIG THANKS!

November is a time to reflect on the things that add to the fabric of our lives. Gramercy Books is grateful to be a gathering place for our customers: to support conversation and discourse, to provide inspiration and comfort, to build community, and to bring joy.

NOVELS SET IN PARIS

By the time you read this, I will be on my way to Paris. While collecting information about The City of Light, I also began thinking about the range of books I’ve read that are set in Paris, from a children’s favorite, Madeline, to several classics, to a story about a bookshop on the Seine!
