Book Warehouse opened last month and will remain in the shopping plaza for about six months.
Book lovers will be happy to learn of a new addition in Winter Garden. A bookstore, albeit temporary, has joined the list of shops at the Winter Garden Village at Fowler Groves. Between 10,000 and 20,000 new books are for sale at the Book Warehouse, according to store manager Caitlin Barnebee, and all are at discount prices.
The store, which has a six-month lease at the shopping center, opened Oct. 15 in the space previously filled by Sports Authority.
“We’re pleased to welcome Book Warehouse to the strong lineup of retailers at Winter Garden Village,” Brandon Glenn, communications manager for DDR Corp., said.
He said the store plans to double its current inventory in the next week or two.
Barnebee said shipments of new books come in continually. The books are divided by genre and include biography, history, entertainment, religion, sports, children and young adults, science, health, new age and cooking.
All the books are new and are considered overstock and aftermarket, Barnebee said. Prices are 50 and 60 percent off the publisher’s price.
Currently, books and DVDs are the only merchandise; the manager said she didn’t know if other items, such as calendars and book-related décor, would be included. The children’s section does include an expanded line that includes activity books and coloring books.
“This is only our initial shipment supply, and we’ll be getting more things in,” Barnebee said.
