Welcome

Bindings Bookstore made the front page of the Medina Journal Register on October 8, 2010!

By Rikki Cason The Journal-Register

ALBION — Having a place where they could browse for their favorite classic novel or find the newest best seller, locally, has been a want for many Albion residents. Making that dream a reality, Carolyn and Jason Ricker’s new store Bindings Bookstore is officially open in Albion.

Located at 28 W. Bank St., Bindings Bookstore offers a variety of new and used books for every audience.

“We felt that Albion really needed one because there’s really nothing here,” said Carolyn. “We thought we’d do new and used because it’s a whole new market. People like to get a good deal.”

Working in a book store when she was younger and having a small home book business for a brief time, plus her love of books, helped lead to the opening of the store. Another reason was that Carolyn currently home-school’s her two children. She said that it is hard to find the books that they need, even going into the city to find them.

Bindings Bookstore will offer a used home schooling sections where other parents can come and swap books. The store will also offer new and used books in all genres, including fiction, parenting, psychology, religion, biography, history, health and wellness and more. There is also a children’s section with books, puzzles and family games. The store also offers cards, magnets, journals, day planners and other items.

Carolyn said that the store currently has around 2,500 new books and 500 used books, with more to come.

Another sections that was important for Carolyn to have in the store was local authors. She said that a lot of residents like being able to find books about Albion, Orleans County and the Erie Canal, and it is also nice for tourist that come through to be able to buy a book and learn more about the area.

“A lot of people have been really excited that we’re here,” said Carolyn. “It’s been really nice. There’s been a lot of positive comments.”

The Rickers, who live in Kent, moved from Vermont to Orleans County 10 years ago.

Bindings Bookstore will have its official grand opening on Oct. 23. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
