Warehouse Weekends

We know you value local. 

We know you make it a point to shop at independent businesses, dine at local restaurants, attend neighborhood events, support community organizations, and champion area artists.

That’s why we’re such good friends.

That’s also why you’re invited to join us this fall for Harvard Book Store’s Warehouse Weekends where local is the name of the game.  We’ve asked dozens of our favorite community cohorts to help us celebrate our collective ind(ie)pendence with bargain books, free samples, contests, workshops, and more!

From 10:00 A.M.-6:00 P.M.  today, our 6500 sq. ft. warehouse in Somerville will feature astronomy demonstrations, a "Test Your Science (fiction) Knowledge" contest, an award for best costume (fiction and historical figures are fair game) and more.  And did we mention our 25,000 used, rare, and remainder books available for your browsing pleasure?   And if that weren't enough of an incentive, all science, math, and science fiction used and remainder books are 15% all weekend long!


The American Association of Variable Star Observers  - What's a variable star, you ask? Find out at AAVSO's booth and come away with not only answers, but also giveaways!
AisleConnect -  AisleConnect demos their new iOS app which makes navigating retail environments and locating exactly what you're looking for easy! Supermarket Sweep contestants should have had this app!
Taco Party - Everything you love about Mexican food - hold the meat! Taco Party is one of Boston's favorite vegetarian food trucks.
Somerville Local First - Pick up your Harvest Fest 2013 tickets and connect with Somerville scientists!

Our Warehouse is located at 14 Park St. in Somerville, between Somerville Ave. and Beacon St., just outside of Union Square. The closest T stop is Porter Square, on the Red Line, and bus lines #83 and #87 have stops on Somerville Ave. near Park St.

And unlike at most parties… friends of friends are definitely encouraged to bring friends! See you there!
