The store will close at the end of the month for the summer to prepare for the move to 1225 Cathedral St., the site of a former restaurant that's next door to Baltimore Theatre Project. The worker-owned cooperative is currently located at 30 W. North Ave.
"Our growth at North Avenue has been much faster than we anticipated," co-founder Kate Khatib said. "It's actually gotten to the point where it's a little too small for us."
In the new location, Red Emma's is doubling the size of its bookstore as well as adding a full bar and a seated dining area that will allow it to offer "a plant-based dinner menu in addition to its current mostly vegan breakfast and lunch offerings."
