Welcome to Ellen Plumb's City Bookstore
We are sorry to announce that Ellen Plumb's City Bookstore will close for good on January 31, 2020. Although we've tried for months and months, we are unable to find an affordable and appropriate permanent location for the bookshop. We hope you will stop in for a last visit between now and Friday, January 31. Everything in the store is 50% off--and all store fixtures, furnishings, and shelves are also for sale. Thank you, booklovers, for a truly wonderful run since 2016. It's been a joy getting to know you and the books you love.
Ellen Plumb opened Emporia's first bookstore in 1870. Her family helped found the city of Emporia. One of the first two graduates of the Kansas State Normal School (now Emporia State University), Miss Plumb was always ahead of her time--and the original spirit of "Locally owned. Fiercely independent." in our town. Nearly a century and a half later, it's our goal to honor her legacy and love of literature.
