King Street's Blue Bicycle Books recently completed an extensive renovation, which should keep the store in tip-top shape for years to come.

According to a press release, the following changes were made:

  • Installed new carpeting, shelving, ceilings, and lighting,
  • Built a new point of sale area
  • Removed the drop ceiling in the front room
  • The walls in the front area were removed so the space now seats more than 50 people for readings and talks
  • Fluorescent lighting was replaced with track lighting and modern pendants
  • The children’s room doubled in size
  • The food section was expanded
  • A new hand-crafted wood counter was installed
  • Exposed brick was added
  • A new sound system was installed
  • A display of 23 framed vintage bicycle posters were added

Blue Bicycle Books is located at 420 King Street in a brick building that was around 1940. It previously served as a print shop, ophthalmologist's office, and a deli before the book store opened in 1995.
