The locally owned, independent bookstore in Old Town Winchester, the Winchester Book Gallery, is changing locations at the end of July for the first time in 44 years and the 2nd time in its history. The shop is moving the books, cards, puzzles and art from 185 North Loudoun Street to 7 North Loudoun Street.
The Winchester Book Gallery was established in 1972 in Old Town Winchester on Boscawen Street by the Petersons. In 1974, the Furbers owned the Book Gallery and moved it to the northwest corner of the Old Town mall, 185 North Loudoun Street. Through the years the Book Gallery has been very fortunate to grow and change in Old Town with each new owner - the Dunnings, the Wises (1984-1994), the Cooks (1994-2001), the Majors, Gemmas and Ingrams (2001-2006), the Gyursins (2006-2011) and, since 2011, the Patricks.
And now, the Patricks have moved the Book Gallery just down the block to 7 North Loudoun Street. This new location is larger than the corner location and all on one floor offering more flexible spaces for Author Events, Book Clubs, Game Nights and more. For 46 years, this independent, locally owned bookstore has served the northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. As a cornerstone of the community with new books, local art, cards, and puzzles, the Book Gallery will now offer more author events and literary programming while continuing to host regular book signings, monthly game nights, and live music. The Winchester Book Gallery will continue to hard work to inspire, inform and amuse customers with compelling book selections, a diverse selection of other merchandise and events.
