Spellbound Is Moving to 21 Battery Park Avenue as of February 1, 2012
Spellbound is leaving our Wall Street location after the end of the year and will be open for business at 21 Battery Park Avenue beginning February 1st, 2012.
More than just a simple move, this also marks the beginning of a beautiful friendship between two businesses. Spellbound will now be located within ZaPOW!, the brand-new comics and illustration art gallery on Battery Park.
Much like our arrangement on Wall Street with Alisha Silver Photography, starting in February Spellbound and ZaPOW will be two separate businesses sharing the same space. In this case, however, the two businesses are more directly complementary, the integration will be more seamless, and we will be in a larger, brighter space that will be more accommodating for in-store events of all sizes. We are already brainstorming with Lauren and Matt, ZaPOW’s owners, planning lots of fun joint events for kids, teens, and adults–so stay tuned for more information about events in our next newsletter.
We will be open for business at 19 Wall Street through the end of 2011. Below are answers to some (anticipated) Frequently Asked Questions. Feel free to contact us by phone, email, Facebook, or Twitter with any other questions.
Why are you moving?
Good question! The simplest answer is that, as much as we love Wall Street, our landlords, and our business neighbors, there is a lot more foot (and vehicle) traffic on Battery Park. We were offered a chance to move to a better location that will actually cost us less, so we jumped at it! Also, the folks at ZaPOW are fabulous and we think that this partnership will be very positive for both our businesses and, most importantly, for our customers.
When are you moving?
We will be open for business at the 19 Wall Street location through the end of December 2011. We will be closed the entire month of January. We will re-open for business inside ZaPOW beginning Wednesday, February 1, 2012.
Where exactly on Battery Park can we find you?
Just go in the entrance for the ZaPOW gallery at 21 Battery Park Avenue. We will have signage to guide you. For those who like landmarks, ZaPOW is located near the Grove Arcade, between the Subway sandwich shop and Blitzkrieg Games, across the street from Chai Pani.
Will your store hours change?
Yes! Our store hours will be the same as ZaPOW’s. As of February 1, that means:
There is a chance that these hours may expand at some point–we will let you know about any changes a.s.a.p.
Are you having a moving sale?
Why, yes we are! Monday December 26 – Saturday December 31 we will be open 11am-6pm and will have a huge Post-Holiday/Moving Sale. Everything will be on sale, and many books and other items will be 40% off!
However, we will not be getting in new stock after Christmas in the Wall Street location, so come early in the week for the best selection.
