Deb Horan, owner with Tina Brinks, store associate

Booklovers’ Gourmet welcomes new team member Tina Brinks. Tina and her family have lived in Webster for many years and she has been a frequent customer in the store. Tina is a keen reader, and her main interests are art, mystery, science, and health. She is happy to have the opportunity to work with Debbie to create a warm and inviting atmosphere where everybody feels free to browse, have a coffee and enjoy the many different pastries. She works hard to be of value in providing excellent customer service and making sure that customers have a unique and satisfactory shopping experience in an independent bookstore. Please stop in and say “Hi!” to welcome Tina to the Booklovers’ family!

A little history about us: Booklovers’ Gourmet opened in March 1995 by current owner Debra Horan with the goal of establishing a cultural oasis in the town of Webster, MA. You will find thousands of new and gently used books, from the hard to find to current bestsellers. We are happy to special order any title for you. Alongside our wide selection of books, we offer many unique gifts including journals, bookmarks, pottery mugs, gemstone jewelry, aromatherapy oils & incense, handcrafted soaps & soy candles, jigsaw puzzles and children’s toys. We hope to resume our regular events schedule as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, check our online calendar for some fun virtual events and video interviews with our featured artist of the month.
