Mr B’s Emporium of Reading Delights in Bath is one of Britain’s best loved bookshops and if you ever wanted to support them now is the time to do it as they launch a crowdfunding campaign to expand its premises.
The store is already an absolutely delightful place to be, and if you haven’t already visited Mr B’s Emporium, you can find it in our bookshop section by clicking the link attached to the name in this paragraph.
As bookshops go it’s a delight to the senses but the owners are hoping this new crowdfunding campaign will allow them to expand the premises with plans for “something that shows kids, and reminds grown-ups how exciting reading can be and that shows the high street is very much alive and kicking”.
The opportunity to expand has presented itself by an upcoming vacancy in the shop’s adjacent premises at 13 John Street, which is currently occupied by a gallery. Mr B, Nic Bottomley has launched a crowdfunding campaign with the hope of raising £45,000 to enable it to take on the lease of the new premises this autumn, allowing the shop to expand without relocating. The expansion would more than double the extra floor space in the shop, allowing them to stock more titles and host more events.
