Ahead of a long-anticipated relocation this spring, the Paperback Exchange (PBX) invites the community to a special “Moving Sale” from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Jan. 5-7, 12-14, and 19-21. Visitors can bring a bag to PBX and fill it for $5 each, with sales tax included and no restrictions on the number of bags filled per customer.
The current PBX location at 77 Silver St. will be closed from Jan. 26 through April 23 while the transition is made to “Creative Works” in downtown Norwich, located at 17-19 South Broad St. A grand re-opening and ribbon cutting are being planned to coincide with “World Book Day.”
As a beloved community resource, this relocation to a more central venue – with higher visibility, greater accessibility, larger storage space, extended open hours, and increased traffic – is ideally suited for PBX’s long-term sustainability.
During regular operations, PBX allows visitors to trade in previously read fictional paperback books in exchange for store credit towards future purchases of books in the shop. Please note that PBX will be open in January for this special “Moving Sale” only, so book trade-ins for credit are being suspended until the re-opening this spring.
