Soft Open

Come by to get a sneak peek inside before we officially reopen! At this soft open, you’ll get to:

  • Be among the very first to explore the store’s new layout
  • Meet Margaret, 826DC’s new Store Coordinator, and learn more about volunteering with her in the shop
  • Write fortunes for the Clairvoyant Vending Machine

Grand Reopening

Saturday, August 26th, between 10 AM and 6 PM

We’ve missed you all! Come by for our first, celebratory day back open for business. There will be:

  • Balloons
  • A wheel that you can spin for prizes and discounts
  • A free mini-zine with every purchase
  • 8.26% off of everything in the store
  • And more!

Following these festivities, the shop will be open most Saturdays from 10 AM to 6 PM. It’s located next to the Giant on Park Road NW, with an accessible entrance around the corner at 3333 14th Street NW.

All proceeds from Tivoli’s Astounding Magic Supply Co. help keep 826DC’s youth writing programs 100% free for DC students ages 6-18.

P.S. Want us to email you a reminder about the soft opening or the grand reopening? We’d be happy to do that! Let us know here and we’ll make it happen.
