Novel bookstore open for business in Memphis

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis bookworms, rejoice! A beloved reading spot officially reopened for business with a few changes.

Novel bookstore took over the former location of longtime fixture, The Booksellers at Laurelwood, which closed earlier this year.

People with the store said that they're glad to still have a local option to buy and sell their books.

"We do all of our buying locally, we want to reach out to more local authors, local makers to make sure they're represented and we're representing the entire Memphis community," said marketing manager Nicole Yasinsky.

The store is locally owned by 27 different owners.

The store held a soft opening at the new location, located at 387 Perkins Extd., but the grand opening will be Friday.
