New Digs for Letters Bookshop

A new storefront location for Letters Bookshop in Durham

It’s been an exciting couple of months for booksellers around North Carolina as many stores have expanded their in-store browsing hours and others, like The Regulator Bookshop in Durham, opened their doors for the first time since March of 2020.

On the other side of the Bull City, Letters Bookshop reopened on July 6 in an entirely new space downtown. The new shop at 116 W. Main St. offers “More space, more used books, more new books, expanded area for kids…and beer, wine, drip coffee, and events coming soon.”

Letters will continue to offer order pickup, local delivery, and mail-order services.

Founded by Land Arnold in December, 2013, this indie bookstore specializes in carefully selected used books, tables featuring new paperbacks and hardcovers, as well as a children’s book section stocked with mostly new books.

Letters sells gift cards and audiobooks through as well. And just as a heads up, they are closed Sunday and Monday (for now).
