A sign went up in the window of the former Reel Life South video store on Eighth Avenue last week, reports Here’s Park Slope, and a scanned QR code reveals that the space will house an offshoot of Dumbo’s Powerhouse Books.
According to Here’s Park Slope, the message that pops up on your phone when you scan the code reads:
"Hi there! We're going to be a brand new bookstore, reading club, mini-gallery, and community space opening in October. Our mothership is in Dumbo, and we'll be bringing the best stationery, kids, YA, novelty, cooking, decorating, and style books we have there and more...Maybe some wonderful coffee, hard candy...and other items one might find in a general store (that was also a mini gallery and reading space!)
We can't wait; we hope you are as excited as we are!
Dan & Suzanne
(proud PS 107 parents!)"
The store will be named Powerhouse on 8th, and like the flagship store – which opened in 1995 – will stock art and design books, as well as space for readings and art showings.
