where can i buy cheap nfl jerseys A new bookstore for Port Coquitlam
Western Sky takes its name from the Broadway musical Wicked, which is based on the 1939 flick The Wizard of Oz where the protagonist, Dorothy, and her crew followed the yellow brick road to reach their magical destiny.
For the pair, their path around the city’s only retail bookstore will have a story of its own: One that will honour the people who helped them achieve their dream.
For their “road” will contain the names of everyone who donated new and used books and supplied funding to pay for expenses to open a storefront in the strip mall next to Safeway.
Officially, the couple threw open their doors to their 1,350 sq. ft. space on Nov. 6 (they plan a public celebration in the new year),
offering more than 6,000 titles on the shelves.
Though they’ve only had a soft opening, both Ganz and Gorin are buoyed by the response so far. Book lovers have travelled from out of town to pick up certain hardbacks while families have enjoyed browsing the aisles.
Gorin said they set up the store with kids in mind, organizing the children’s literacy area at the back and placing an overstuffed couch at the front for adult readers to lounge.
“Everything we do is because of the community and we can’t thank them enough for their support,” Gorin said. “It’s taken us a long time to get here and, because of the community, we’ve done it.”
