Wicker Park is Coming Back

Dear Booklovers,

 

We are happy to report that, with the help of our incredible book loving community, we have purchased a permanent home for Volumes Bookcafe in Wicker Park.

Where?

The new address will be 1373 N Milwaukee, housed in the former beloved Wicker Park institution Filter Cafe location. We are so excited to come back to the community we love. We have two of our very favorite small businesses on either side of us. Reckless Records to the north and Transit Tees to the south.

 

When? 

Well, we have a little bit of work to do, and honestly, much like last time, a great deal of it will be created through our own blood, sweat and tears. Last time we weren't running a whole business (or two) plus putting this all together, so bear with us as we scramble a bit. We need new floors and new shelves and to get allllll of our stuff moved over from storage. It will take a little while. We HOPE to be open by early June. Fingers Crossed.

 

How Can I Help?

You can continue to support us online or at our other shop downtown at 900N. We have bills to pay and any help is a BIG help.

You can volunteer! We need help painting and sanding and moving things around. We will obviously need help putting books away when that time comes. Volunteers can sign up here.

 

As always, you can stay up to date via our social media. instagram, twitter and facebook are all @volumesbooks!

 

Thank you, and we can't wait to reopen our doors once again!

 

Rebecca and Kimberly
