The Bookshop is the latest business to join an eclectic mix of neighborhood taverns, local boutiques and personal services to be found at the intersection of 16th Street and Bethany Home Road.

Located on the northwest corner a few doors down from Luci’s Healthy Marketplace, The Bookshop doors open daily to serve those ready to sit outside and enjoy the fabulous Arizona winter weather with a cup of coffee and good book.

The Bookshop’s something-for-everyone approach works with an inventory focused on customer preference, with select literature, self-help, arts, and gifts to round out your shopping experience.

Owner Sven Rosckowff, who most recently operated Bards Books on 7th Street, sees bookstores as indispensable cultural hubs. Brose through new and used books, take advantage of featured discounts and sales, and sign up for specials on social apps and an e-mail list.

Store hours are from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 12-6 Sunday. Bards Books store credit is valid and redeemable at The Bookshop. Customers are encouraged to buy-sell-trade their books with the store in exchange for store credit. For more information, call 602-274-7530 or visit
