Bookshop enlists human chain for new store move

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

November is already shaping up to be a banner month for October Books, an independent bookshop and co-operative in the port city of Southampton, England. This weekend, the shop will open in its new location down the street of the storefront that it occupied for 15 years before being priced out of the address. But before the staff turned their attention to the grand opening, they had a problem to face: How would they manage to move all their stock to the new location?

As Kevin Rawlinson reports for the Guardian, they reached out to the community—and the community answered. Last Sunday, some 250 people formed a human chain between October Books’ new and old locations, passing more than 2,000 books between them and emptying out an entire stockroom.
