Just received the following e-mail from the owner of the first new independent bookstore - Metropolis Books - featuring new books - and some used books, too - to open Downtown in many, many years.
I just wanted to let you know that Metropolis Books is now open!! The City is planning our Grand Opening for December 15th, once the date is firm I will send out evites. For now please feel free to come on down to 440 S. Main Street in L.A. Last week there was an article in Publishers Weekly about the store, and we will have a small feature in the Downtown News this week and a larger feature later. Hope to see all of you soon.
Beautifully done space with lots of great couches and chairs - right in the heart of Gallery Row and within walking distance of 5 great new clothing stores and 9 - and soon to be 12 - new restaurants.
Welcome to the 'hood, Metropolis Books!
