The Central Market Arcade is being redeveloped, meaning we must make way for the bulldozers at the end of June. And whilst, like a phoenix, our sister store (Orchard Bookshop) looks set to rise from the rubble and set up elsewhere in the CBD (to be revealed shortly), Adelaide’s Pop-Up Bookshop will cease to have a bricks & mortar location.
Over the past few years, we have used our Popup Bookshop profile to establish a community book room which has provided thousands of people with the opportunity to sample a truly diverse range of books.
We recognise this has been a source of great joy & comfort to so many members of our community – especially those in lower socio-economic groups who have felt safe and welcome in this literary space – & we are greatly saddened by the fact that we will no longer be able to provide this service.
We will still be trading into May and there are many books available for $1each plus our other assortment of sale stock & oddments.
So please try to take advantage of this small window of time before we do go gentle into that good night. xoxo N&K
