Cranbrook’s Lotus Books moves & transforms into Huckleberry Books
The new store is a bit smaller than the previous location yet it projects a very comfortable, cozy, Kootenay kind of feel.
Erin Dalton has moved her independently-owned bookstore, known for many years as Lotus Books, from 10th Avenue in downtown Cranbrook to 9th Avenue. Not only is the location new but the store now sports a more Kootenay-centric name — Huckleberry Books.
The new store is a bit smaller than the previous location yet it projects a very comfortable, cozy, Kootenay kind of feel. At approximately 700 square feet the new bookstore is divided up into speciality areas and continues to give shoppers generous space to browse and relax while selecting their favourite books.
Explaining the name change to Huckleberry Books, Dalton told Kootenay Business, “It’s very Kootenays.”
She also said, "The bookstore now has several nooks and pods, including a map room called the “Indiana Jones” room, a thinker’s corner, a “feed me” space with items for the mind, body and soul, and a kids’ reading room."
And, oh yes, Max the cat made the move as well.
You will find Huckleberry Books at 16 - 9th Avenue South in Cranbrook.
