Welcome to the brand new E-Commerce version of Morgenstern Booksellers. In the 1990’s the original Morgenstern’s was a beloved community bookstore in Bloomington, IN, home of Indiana University. It was forced to close its business due to national chain competition coming into town. Twenty some years later the national chains have left the community, and Morgenstern’s is reopening its iconic independent bookstore. As we progress towards opening (delayed for several months due to the pandemic) we have opened a pop-up shop in another Bloomington treasure – Bloomingtea, a homey college town tea shop. Help us to fully realize our dream of reopening – buy your books online from us through this platform while we finish our work to open our permanent store. Your purchases on this site give us the momentum we need to bring back Morgenstern’s. It takes a community to build a community treasure; buy from us, and support our efforts to give Bloomington once again a comprehensive, superb independent bookstore.
