River Bend Bookshop
River Bend Bookshop is an independent bookstore located in Glastonbury (CT) town center. "We are so proud of our new storefront at 2217 Main Street. This store is yours... The shelves were custom designed for our unique space (built in 1863), and I hand selected the nearly 6,000 titles we carry," writes owner Meghan Hayden on the store's website.
Nothing makes us happier than a happy customer! Thank you for choosing us to make your store fixtures!
