After 26 Years, Virginia Kress is Retiring and the Store is Closing
To My Valued Friends and Customers
It is with both sadness and excitement that as of Saturday, August 31 I am formally announcing my retirement and the closing of The Readers Loft.
These past 26 years have brought so much joy I don’t even know how to properly express it. Not just the books themselves but all the people that have come into my life as a result; customers, authors and co-workers alike. My goal from the beginning was to create a haven from the frantic world we all find ourselves living in. I hope you have found over the years that The Reader’s Loft was a place of refuge and peace for you. From our book clubs to writing circles to poetry readings I hope you have also found nourishment for your mind and soul. I will miss you all!
On a more positive note, Amy will be opening a new bookstore created in her own vision on
Washington Street in downtown Green Bay. While her store Lion’s Mouth will offer the same
basic services as our current store, the setting will be a bit more contemporary. We hope you
will all continue your patronage of our local independent bookstore.
Thank you for your support over the years.
All the best,
