Brighter, airier: That describes the Booksellers at Laurelwood after its recent makeover, which introduced a variety of welcoming colors on the walls, fresh carpeting throughout, some rearrangement of departments, and a handsome reworking (and renaming) of the book store's popular restaurant, which is now the Booksellers Bistro. The children's section has a roomier look to it too, with young-adult titles given separate space. What hasn't changed: the store's knowledgeable staff and level of service, which owner Neil van Uum sees as key components to the company's staying power. County mayor Mark Luttrell sees the "new" Booksellers at Laurelwood as a commitment to local commerce. He'll be on-hand to help cut the ribbon at the book store's "reopening" on Wednesday, December 14th, at 4 p.m. You're invited.
