Best Chain Bookstore

Joseph-Beth, Southpark

Staff Pick

Open for just a little more than a year, the Charlotte location of this five-store chain has written a new chapter in retailing, hosting four book clubs, offering seemingly nonstop author events and kids’ story times ... even promoting local musicians during June’s “Music & Movie Celebration.” And — hello! — who wouldn't love Brontë, “a novel bistro and wine bar.” Sigh ... a bookstore with a wine bar. And catering. Now that’s what we call feeding the soul.
