Jamie Arpin-Ricci and his wife are opening a little used bookstore and coffee shop called The Dusty Cover. It’s in Winnipeg, so I don’t imagine I’ll be dropping by any time soon, especially since he told me they’re hovering in the -40 degree zone of late.
However, I’m really interested in seeing what develops out of this. He’s partnering with community groups and working on making it more than just a book store. He just sent a message on Facebook with the following info:
The bookstore will be open Tuesday-Friday, 10:00am to 5:30pm. On Friday we are open until 6pm. We hope to expand hour once summer hits.
Also, we will be doing a Grand Opening week later in the Spring, once we’ve worked out the kinks and the weather improves. Thanks all!
Be sure to drop by his web site or if you’re an intrepid soul, drop in this Tuesday for the grand opening.
