Book Revue’s Successor Plans to Open on New York Avenue

The successor to the Book Revue said Thursday that it has found its new, permanent home, at 204 New York Ave., Huntington.

The Next Chapter’s Mallory Braun said a lot of work remains to be done before the store can open, and until then, it will continue to have its pop-up sales. The new site, next to Stella Blue Bistro, is “is a five minute walk from Book Revue. I’m not kidding, I timed it. But if you don’t feel like walking, we have a parking lot, and it’s not a tiny one either,” Braun said.

The Book Revue, a Huntington institution for several years, closed in September after falling behind on its rent. Owner Richard Klein gave away thousands of books after closing his doors. Braun, who previously worked at the Book Revue, and Klein have been working to launch the new business. Braun ran a digital marketing campaign to find the funds to open the new business, and eager supporters contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars.

In the meantime, The Next Chapter has been running pop-up sales in different locations, including Friday and Saturday at the Main Street Nursery.
