A few weeks ago, we told you guys that local independent bookstore Nightbird Books would be moving into the old building that formerly housed the Ozark Mountain Smokehouse on Dickson Street. The moving process will begin on Sunday, and should take around three days.
Nightbird will be closed from March 29th through the 31st in order to complete the move, and plans to open in its new location on April 1st. According to the press release we received, several loyal Nightbird customers will assist with the move.
Nightbird’s customers are absolutely wonderful; so many of them have made a point of shopping with us regularly since the economy has slowed down and they always ask how the bookstore is faring. Many have so kindly offered to help with the move because they recognize the great opportunity for growth at the new location.
Nightbird opened in April of 2006, and will celebrate their third anniversary in the new location. Interestingly, the Ozark Mountain Smokehouse was opened by Nightbird owner Lisa Sharp’s Grandfather-in-law back in 1946.
At the new location, the store will be open extended hours, from 10 am to 9 pm, Monday through Saturday and 11 am to 6 pm, on Sundays. Several events are already on the calendar to celebrate the 3rd anniversary and new location, including a 5% discount all month to customers willing to recite a poem at checkout as part of National Poetry Month. Plans are also still in the works to add a restaurant in the new location.
Pretty awesome addition to Dickson St. if you ask us. Congrats, Lisa.
