About a month ago I mentioned a new children's bookstore opening soon in Orchard Park, "B is for Books". Well, the store is going to open this week! They're doing a soft-open on October 9, with a grand opening bash to come on October 13. Check out their website, bis4books.com, for more information. These aren't the best of times to be opening independent bookstores, but here's hoping they make it -- consider them, for instance, for your next big birthday party for your kid, if you're sick of the whole Chuck E. Cheese scene. And support a local business while doing so!
UPDATE: I see that their website doesn't include directions. For those unfamiliar with Orchard Park or with the Southtowns in general, take the 219 south to the Orchard Park exit, and take Route 20A (which becomes Quaker St. in Orchard Park). When you come to the intersection of 20A and 277/240 (Buffalo St), keep going straight, and Bis4Books will be on the left not more than a few hundred feet past the intersection. They have parking in the rear. And while you're here, check out some of the other nifty little shops and eateries we have to offer in Orchard Park! We've got a great little town here, I'll tell you what.
