Independent Booksellers of New York City

Shop local – Don't go by the book!

Support Independent Businesses: America Unchained Day

aunchained1This Saturday, November 22, choose to shop outside the chain. America Unchained Day is a nationwide initative to promote awareness of and support for independent businesses. The choice of where you buy your coffee, your prescription, your books, your lightbulbs, or your dinner might seem like just a matter of convenience. But when you choose to shop at a locally owned independent business rather than a chain store, you’re making a choice for what kind of city, and what kind of world, you want to live in.

The IBNYC invites you to visit independent bookstores and other locally-owned businesses throughout the city on Saturday, to show your support for neighborhood businesses, and to help inject some valuable dollars into the local economy. Learn more about America Unchained here, and find independent businesses in your community at Indiebound.

Special events or sales happening at IBNYC stores this Saturday:

Bauman Rare Books: Open House Intro. to Rare Book Collecting from 11 am – 2 pm.

Bonnie Slotnick Cookbooks: Home-made chocolate-chip oatmeal cookies!

Book Culture: 10% off most items in the store and 20% off select Random House titles. Join us for a holiday showcase from 2-4 pm with reps. from Random House, who will talk about their favorite titles.

Housing Works: 10% discount on all books, music and movies for the entire day.

PowerHouse Arena: 50 Photographs book signing with Jessica Lange from 4-5:30 pm. 50 Photographs gathers Lange’s impressive portfolio into her first-ever photography monograph.

Thanks for supporting IBNYC bookstores and other independent businesses, this Saturday – and always!
