Toronto Women's Bookstore re-opens
According to Quill & Quire, the store is now a traditional for-profit business, rather than a not-for-profit as it was before. New owner Victoria Moreno considers the opening a "soft" one, since she says there is still more work to be done inside.
Moreno is currently installing a café with seating and WiFi on the first floor. Though stock is still meagre, course orders have begun rolling in from the University of Toronto. TWB has also started booking events, which are currently slated right through October.
It remains to be seen if a more event-based approach will ensure the store's long term success, but with the number of independents dwindling, it's nice to see them having a go at it.
More to come when the store gets a bit further along in the reboot process.
