Grand Opening of Auntie's This Weekend

SPOKANE, Wash. - Auntie's Inc. announces the grand opening of Auntie's at the Square this weekend at River Park Square mall in downtown Spokane.  A 3,000 square-foot annex of the large main bookstore, Auntie's at the Square is the result of consumer requests for a full-service bookstore at Spokane's premier shopping destination.

A complete selection of new inventory characterizes Auntie's at the Square, with an emphasis in bestselling fiction and nonfiction titles, recent releases, children's books, magazines, cards and gifts for book lovers.  The store will feature select author events and Saturday story time for children.

Auntie's at the Square occupies the Skywalk level space formerly held by Children's Corner bookstore, and is staffed by seasoned Auntie's booksellers from the iconic main store.  Designed to appeal to the demographic base that frequents the mall, River Park Square customers will also have access to new and used inventory from Auntie's Bookstore at Main and Washington, which will provide curbside service for the convenience of mall shoppers.

Longtime Auntie's bookseller, Melissa Opel (M.F.A.), has been promoted to Store Manager of Auntie's at the Square.  In addition to her skills as buyer, web manager and outside sale coordinator, Ms. Opel brings with her the Auntie's philosophy of exemplary customer service and comprehensive operational experience from her tenure at the main store.

Grand Opening events include live music, appearances by Jess Walter and Patrick McManus, hourly drawings for $25.00 Auntie's gift certificates, and a total purchase discount of 20%.  See auntiesbooks.com for more event details.
