Three Avenues Bookshop is opening on Southport Avenue this fall after years of residents asking for a local bookstore in the area. Southport, AKA West Lakeview, is known for its calm streets, independent stores, and sweet coffee spots. Luckily, Three Avenues Bookshop will fit right in, as residents are sure to embrace the new spot with open arms. While the space is still under construction, owners Tim and Jordan are excited to bring their vision to life.
The bookstore is expected to open in either September or October with construction underway now. It will be located at 3003 N. Southport Avenue at the intersection of Southport, Lincoln, and Wellington. According to the official website, the new store aims to promote literacy, connection, and engagement within the community and beyond, writing, “We believe in independent bookstores and the power that stories have to open our minds and bring people together.”
For those anticipating the indie bookstore’s opening, shop their official website beforehand for a look at the merch and back-stock of books, audiobooks, and more that will be on hand. There’s also a monthly newsletter announcing upcoming events and additional surprises in store.
