This Week In The Bookshop – R.I.P. Robin’s Books

We are sad to see the closing of another independent bookstore, Robin’s Bookstore

After 76 years in business Philadelphia’s oldest independent bookstore will be closing its doors forever. 

It begs the question:  What’s it worth to your community, to your common culture, to have an independent bookstore?

We are so grateful to those of you who shop in our store.  We love when you bring your children and grandchildren to read books and play.  We love when you get a cup of coffee or tea and sit in the back and read.  We love it when you come to Open Mic Night and play a song or read a poem.  We especially love when you buy books and tell us how much you love us!

We want to continue to offer you a great selection of books and gifts in a warm and cozy atmosphere.  Our staff loves helping you find just the right book or gift for yourself or your loved one so don’t hesitate to ask for recommendations. 

Please continue your patronage and tell all your friends about us.  We are always open to suggestions as well so if there is anything you would recommend we would love to hear from you.

We will be opening our Holiday Shoppe next month so stop by and see all of the great, hand picked items we will be carrying for the holiday season.
