Read Shop Opening Tomorrow in Dallas, Tex.

Read Shop, a bookstore and coffee shop with titles for all ages, opens this weekend in Dallas, Tex., Culturemap Dallas reported.

Located at 2730 N. Henderson Ave. in the city's Knox Henderson neighborhood, Read Shop carries a general-interest inventory that includes a substantial cooking section as well as a dedicated children's area upstairs. Read Shop's nonbook selection includes cookware, mugs, toys, and gifts, while the cafe side of the business serves Stumptown coffee and offers pastries from La Casita Bakeshop. There are also plans to add tacos.

The Dallas store is the second Read Shop location. Owner Dan Collier founded the original in Atlanta, Ga., in 2016, and at first it had no coffee shop component. Collier told Culturemap that for a long time, people would come in and browse but did't buy. Adding the coffee shop solved that problem: "People came in looking for coffee, and left with coffee and a book."

Collier noted that at the Atlanta store, nonfiction tends to do best, particularly cookbooks, home decor, and art and design.
