We’re Loyalty Bookstore and we’re new here.
We are aiming to be the Mid-Atlantic’s neighborhood spot for wonderful books and unique home goods, gifts, and programming. Our staff and our selection highlight the diverse voices and creatives that make our communities great. When we think about what to feature in our store we focus on how we live in our homes. We provide books and goods for the home because, well, books are home.
On Valentines day, 2019 we opened in Petworth DC in the former Upshur Street Books space on the corner of Upshur and Georgia! Owner Hannah Oliver Depp loved USB and has been proud to continue its tradition of supporting Petworth literati and grow its children’s selection and programming as well as honing the inventory to feature highly curated, intersectional, and diverse literature.
Starting mid-October, 2019 Loyalty will return to Downtown Silver Spring, MD. We loved being a part of the community for a Holiday pop-up in 2018 and are excited to have a more robust pop-up and a long-term lease in the works for Silver Spring going forward.
Whatever the location closest to you, we're focussed on building a bookish community through in-store events, recommendations, book-ter-net socials and meet-ups, and challenging the norms of what a bookstore can do with its space.
Let us know what you want from your new local independent bookstore and community space in the Contact Us section.
Oh, and bring us your doggos. We love a pupper at either location and let's be real, you know the only thing better than books are books ad fluffy friends.
