 Why Shop Indie?

As an independent bookstore, we endeavor to offer the variety and richness of experience you will find in the books on our shelves. We strive to reflect our diverse community, upholding the free exchange of ideas, promoting various perspectives, championing the power of the written word, and bolstering our community here in Goshen and the broader community of readers and authors worldwide.
Your support helps us sustain our locally owned bookstore, allowing us to follow our passion for putting books into readers' hands.
We believe in the power of shopping local. And here's why:
  • You keep dollars in our economy. For every $100 you spend at one of our local businesses, $52 will stay in the community.
  • You create local jobs. Local businesses are better at creating higher-paying jobs for our neighbors.
  • You nurture our community. We know you, and you know us. Studies have shown that local businesses donate to community causes at more than twice the rate of chains and online retailers.
  • money
  • You conserved your tax dollars. Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money available to beautify our community. Also, spending locally instead of online ensures that your sales taxes are reinvested where they belong—right here in our city. You invest in entrepreneurship. Creativity and entrepreneurship are what the American economy is founded upon. Nurturing local businesses ensures a healthy community.
  • You make us a destination. The more interesting and unique we are as a community, the more we will attract new neighbors, visitors, and guests. This benefits everyone!
