Not sure how else to explain it except to say that this bookstore feels streamlined. Clean lines. Not sure if that’s even possible in a store, but that’s the impression I got. Streamlined and spotless.
It’s a very handsome space. Very well-lit. Not at all stuffy, just clean.
RiverRun is in Portsmouth, NH, a thriving town a few minutes from Maine. The city has about 20k citizens and a great art scene. There are a lot of galleries and restaurants, so RiverRun benefits from a lot of the same business.
The store has been open for seven years. They’ve worked closely with the community and host over 100 author events a year. they also partner with Portsmouth Music Hall to host a special reading series — Writers on a New England Stage.
As far as the daily operations, RiverRun provides free shipping — to anywhere in the country — for orders made from their website.
They also have a special station called their 20/20 table — favorite books are offered at 20% discount.
Portsmouth and RiverRun are definitely worth a look if you’re in the area.
