If you’ve been to Vroman’s Bookstore at any point in the past month or two, you know that the store has been under a bit of construction (and we thank you for being so patient during this transition!). Were you wondering why audiobooks were suddenly not where they used to be, or why we moved all of the bargain books to the opposite side of the store? Well, great news! All that construction, moving of sections, and changing displays around is for a wonderful reason! After having been in its location for over 9 years, Vroman’s Fine Writing, Gifts, and Stationery (or, as some of you might know it,“the corner store”) will be moving into the Vroman’s Bookstore main store!
You might be wondering about some things, so here are some FAQs about the Vroman’s Fine Writing, Gifts, and Stationery move:
• When is the corner store moving?
Stop by the old location and say goodbye this weekend- our big moving days are Monday 7/30 and Tuesday 7/31! The corner store will be closed on these two days so we can finish moving merchandise from the old location and into the new space.
• When will the new location open in the main store?
Vroman’s Fine Writing, Gifts, and Stationery will be open in its new space on Wednesday 8/1!
• Where is the new location going to be in the main store?
All of your favorite merchandise from Vroman’s Fine Writing, Gifts, and Stationery will be in the back of the store where the bargain book section and calendars used to be located, between the travel section and the main registers.
Other fun facts!
• Printing services will not be interrupted by the move to the main store.
• Vroman’s will continue to carry all of the merchandise and brands that you loved at the corner store.
• We’re thrilled to welcome the corner store staff to the main store and absolutely cannot wait to work with them!
Here are some photos showing the progress of the move!

Yes, there are a lot of changes, but one thing remains the same: Vroman’s Bookstore is so proud to be here as a part of the Pasadena community!
