Brandi O’Neill is the owner and operator of Kimberley’s new boutique bookstore and cafe called Paper and Cup. The bright new shop/café is centrally located in the middle of the Platz—it recently opened on January 2nd.

In an interview with Kootenay Business owner Brandi O’Neil said, “I believed that Kimberley needed an evening location to have a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, to read or write, or to socialize and relax.”

The café part (Cup) of the business offers hot beverages and Kimberley-made Stoke juices and the plan is to add beer, wine and coffee liqueurs in the near future. From across the Platzl, the Green Door supplies a delicious assortment of baked goods and more substantial food—such as cheese plates from Crème Cheese Shop—will follow.

The books (Paper) featured in the shop will include the newest titles with a few favourites and classics mixed in for adults, young adults and children. “Reading is a huge part of my life and it fits in this business model nicely,” O’Neill added.

Brandi is planning future events at Paper and Cup that will support literacy, writers, schools and book clubs as well as musicians and artists.
