By: Dylan Schleicher @ 6:24 PM – Filed under: The Company

There is some very exciting news from the retail side of our business.

The Harry W. Schwartz Bookshops is partnering with Froedert Hospital on their Small Stones store. Small Stones is an interesting combination of bookstore, classroom and medical resource. The store will have a nurse on staff 40 hours a week to answer questions and help direct people to resources. There are workshops that take place throughout the week. In addition, visitors are able to get health screenings.

The Small Stones location will move from Watertown Plank Road to a space next to our Brookfield location. The planned opening for the new location is early November.

You can read the full press release on Froedert's website.
