It’s official: Kramerbooks is expanding into the space next door.
Kramerbooks and Afterwords Cafe (1517 Connecticut Ave. NW) is building out the former Willie T’s Lobster Shack space at 1511 Connecticut Ave. NW, according to Kramerbooks COO Jamie Galler. We first caught wind of the expansion last week.
Galler talked about the company’s plans during a meeting of Dupont’s ANC 2B last night.
“We are expanding into the space next door,” Galler said. “We anticipate opening to the public… probably the week after next.”
The expansion will “give business, particularly the cafe, some more breathing room,” Galler said. As a result, the shop will have more room to sell a wider variety of books.
A representative for the book store didn’t respond to a request for additional details.
