Kane Realty Corporation is delighted to announce that Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh’s community bookstore, will relocate to the Lassiter District at North Hills. The bookstore will occupy 7,530 square feet and is projected to open Spring 2016.
“We are ecstatic to have Quail Ridge Books open at North Hills,” said John Kane, CEO of Kane Realty Corporation. “It is a great community staple and we believe it will do well in this location.”
Lisa Poole, owner of Quail Ridge Books, said, “While we are sad to leave the Ridgewood neighborhood, we are also very excited to be moving to North Hills and for the opportunities our new location will offer. We won’t be moving far away and we hope that our customers will make the move with us. We have plans to open a beautiful new store while keeping the heart, soul and DNA of Quail Ridge Books alive and well at North Hills.”
Nancy Olson, who started Quail Ridge Books in 1984 and sold it to Ms. Poole in 2013, said, “I’m so pleased that the Quail Ridge Books’ tradition of quality books and great service will continue in an exciting new space. This is a great opportunity to grow the store’s customer base of passionate readers.”
Margaret Maron, author and longtime friend of the store, commented, “As it is for oh, so many North Carolina writers from the Triad to the coast, QRB is my lifeline of support and friendship—from the owner down to the newest sales clerk. Selfishly, I shall miss having QRB on Wade Avenue, but I’m sure my car will soon learn the way to North Hills.”
