Busboys readies bookstore for grand opening

November 10, 2012

BY PAULA MINAERT — Hyattsville has a bookstore again! It is a rarity these days, an independent bookstore. Housed in Busboys and Poets, it’s part of the successful retail StreetSense development. Manager Rodrigo Rioja describes it as a progressive bookstore, carrying books on topics such as cultural studies, the arts, literature and history. At press time, Rioja was still setting up shop in the space originally planned for a graffiti-arts store; the bookstore will carry some of those products. If customers want to buy something before the store is officially open, he adds, they’ll probably be able to.
