Shops to Support on Indie Bookstore Day
Supporting amazing and unique small businesses is more popular than ever. According to the Public Affairs Pulse Survey, Americans are more likely to patronize local businesses than large corporations and associate this shopping with more positive feelings. It’s easy to see why: For every dollar spent at a small business, studies show that 67 cents come back to the community, meaning customers can directly see the results of this investment where they live. In honor of Independent Bookstore Day on April 30, we’ve rounded up some of the best bookstores to visit in-person or online in the 10 largest U.S. cities.
