A bookstore with locations in Tontitown and Bentonville will soon expand to Fayetteville.

Once Upon a Time Books is working to open a children’s bookstore in Evelyn Hills Shopping Center, general manager Allison Harrison confirmed to the Flyer this week.

“We are planning to open a children’s bookstore at the Evelyn Hills location,” Harrison said. “This spot will be in addition to current offerings, and it will not affect stores in Tontitown or Bentonville.”

The shop’s flagship store, including a large book shop and a cafe, is located at 462 E. Henri De Tonti Blvd. in Tontitown.

In 2020, the shop expanded to open a location on the Bentonville square at 116 W. Central Ave.

Renovations on the Fayetteville location are underway. The shop’s address is 1336 N. College Ave.

If all goes well, the new shop will open sometime in the spring of 2024.
