That Book Store, located at 446 Silas Deane Hwy. in Wethersfield, Conn., will hold its soft opening July 15, with a grand opening celebration to follow August 3-5. "Our goal is to provide both a superior customer experience and tremendous value for our customers," co-owners Karen Opper and her daughter, Isabelle, noted on the bookshop's website, adding that they "have been very busy lately trying to get the store ready for you.... In the coming weeks That Book Store has loads of events planned.... With so many upcoming events we are going to get even busier! Can't wait to meet you all in person."
The bookshop is "committed to offering affordable new, bargain, gently read, and electronic books and audiobooks, as well as gifts and educational items for customers of all ages and backgrounds. We exist to provide residents and visitors of Wethersfield, and other towns in southern Hartford county, the best local community bookstore and accessory shopping experience."
Earlier this month, That Book Store shared photos of the bookshop as a work-in-progress, noting: "We are working really hard to get ready for our soft opening July 15. Can’t wait to share the transformation of this space."
