The revolving retail scene in the Hamptons continues anew ahead of summer, with Sag Harbor Books now setting up shop in the village of the same name, the latest in a spate of business openings in the area, as noted by The Real Deal in its recent Tri-State issue. A spokesperson for Manhattan Skyline Corporation, owned by veteran developer Donald Zucker and the landlord for the Sag Harbor storefront at 7 Main Street, told 27east that a 1,650-square-foot ground floor space once home to the clothing store Addo will now house Sag Harbor Books. The bookshop will be run by Greg Harris and Daniel Hirsch, who also run Southampton Books on Hampton Road. The Sag Harbor store will be their second East End location and nearly double the size of the first. Hirsch hopes to have a robust selection of literary offerings, but also wants weave the store into the fabric of the area’s nightlife with author readings and book clubs. For a time, Sag Harbor had been left with just one bookstore, Main Street mainstay Canio’s Books, after Harbor Books shuttered its four-year home at 20 Main Street earlier this year when its rent rose too high. The Independent reported last month that the woman who ran Harbor Books, Taylor Rose Berry, opted to open another store at 51 Division Street under the name Berry & Company. CORRECTION, 6/7/19: The new address of Harbor Books has added to this post. [27east]
