Toronto Women’s Bookstore names new owner

It’s been a tough couple of months for the Toronto Women’s Bookstore, which nearly closed its doors earlier this year after experiencing a steep decline in revenues. Now, however, it appears as though the store is back on track, having named a new owner – former staffer Victoria Romero Moreno – who has some fresh ideas for how to breathe new life into the store.

From the Toronto weekly Xtra!:

Moreno has plans for the bookstore. Changes include adding a café, which should be ready by the end of June, fixing up the backyard to have a nice garden and seating, and adding new signage. She also wants to revamp the website, increase online sales and add WiFi. To build a sense of community, she’ll have social nights and track customer purchases so staff can make recommendations. She also needs to reestablish some relationships, such as gaining the confidence of university professors so they will place orders for the store to carry their course books.
