Book Eddy on the move

Greetings all,

I wanted to let you know that the much-beloved Book Eddy will soon be opening a North Knoxville location. The move was encouraged by the impending closure of the Henley Street Bridge (a four year closure), and will help to keep their doors open.


This is a great opportunity for the Book Eddy to continue serving as an integral part of downtown life, and to rub elbows with Mag Pies.

The new shop will be much smaller than the massive Chapman Highway location, and will have mostly used books from the humanities--think more literature and less Accounting for Dummies.

To boot, the new building was designed by Sanders Pace Architecture, the Knoxville firm responsible for many great designs throughout our city - Southeastern Glass, Nama and TVB, just to name a few.

Doors should open in November, so be sure to come check out their new home.

Awesome, I wondered what was going in there. The space is lovely, and I'm really, really, really excited to have a bookstore in North Knox.

It is sad, but I've never been to the Book Eddy. When is the old one closing? I want to go.

The old one isn't closing - this is just a second location that will have a pared down selection of their (immense) offering

There will also be a "Saturday shop" around the corner at 200 Jennings Ave.
