A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Oliver Street location of Old Editions Bookshop and Gallery, ABAA, will be held on November 1, 2018, at 4 p.m. The public is invited to join in the grand opening celebrations.
From WNYPapers: “Old Editions Bookshop and Gallery sells used and rare books, prints, artwork, first editions, signed books, historical documents, collectible magazines, and other memorabilia. Owner Ronald Cozzi has a vast collection of over 300,000 items that have been acquired over the years.
Old Editions Book Shop and Gallery has grown from a small second-hand bookstore that was started by Ronald Cozzi in 1976 into a retail operation that has accumulated over several hundred thousand books and magazines over the years. Cozzi opened his first bookstore on Hertel Avenue in 1976. After moving several times within the City of Buffalo to accommodate his collection, Cozzi purchased a 38,000 square foot building on East Huron Street, where the business has been located since 1995. As Old Editions shifted its business model to increase its online presence, the building on East Huron Street could no longer accommodate the business’s needs.
In April 2017, Cozzi purchased the former Platter’s Chocolates building located at 954 Oliver St. This 17,000 square foot building will allow Old Editions to the right size for the business and focus on retail and online sales. A small retail component will still be part of the operation on Oliver Street. Old Editions offers something for every budget starting at $3, up to very rare collectible books and memorabilia.”
We can’t be there, but we would like to help Old Editions Bookshop and Gallery celebrate their new location by helping them sell some books! Be patient with them as they move locations. They’ve been listing on Biblio since May 2017, and you can browse their online inventory here: https://www.biblio.com/bookstore/old-editions-inc-buffalo
