Wheatberry Books in downtown Chillicothe , Ohio, hosted its grand opening last Friday. Owner Chelsea Bruning told WKKJ: "We are an independent book store for independent thinkers. Wheatberry has created its own atmosphere; it just kind of came together. It is light and airy, but still comfy and cozy. It's a nice retreat; a comfortable place to browse and feel at home."
Bruning described the bookstore as the culmination of a lifelong dream: "This is something I've always wanted to do. My husband and I started talking about it and we realized that if we don't try, we won't know. Sometimes you have to take a chance on a dream."
Paper City Coffee welcomed its new neighbor with a bookish suggestion on its sidewalk chalkboard, and Wheatberry summed up the grand opening day with a tweet: "Day 1 in the books. Thank you, Chillicothe!"
