Urban Reader Bookstore
I love being able to support small black owned businesses in the area. I discovered this bookstore thanks to you a local blog. It is slightly hidden away in the shopping center and yet is easily accessible. I like the way it was laid out in sections of specific categories. The wall art was also extremely inspiring. I could see myself sitting in here for hours reading. They also had sections with great local items as gifts for people. Theres so much that you can discover in this place and I learned that they also do booksignings for local artist almost weekly if not monthly.
Store owner is very helpful via phone and chat. Service is really reliable and quick. I have been looking for a black bookstore to support and thanks to my sister in law Michelle Lyles I found this one.
This establishment is stocked well on cultural books. I was in awe as I perused around this Black owned Bookstore. Phenomenal!
Yes. An actual, physical bookstore...and it's amazing! Great place to find both poplar and unique urban books, games, puzzles, laptop stickers, art, magnets and more for ALL ages. Great children's selection as well. They also feature local Charlotte authors and book signings. I love it here! #bookgeek
Visited the Urban Reader Bookstore during their grand opening and found it to be a cute book nook. There is a good variety of books and games offered and I am pleased the book I wanted was available in store. The owner was friendly and warm greeting my husband and I as soon as we entered. Ill definitely come back for a trivia night and book club meeting.
