Our name, Rozzie Bound, has three meanings that reflect our goals and values:
We love books
We’re passionate about books. We love reading them, sharing them, talking about them, and learning from them. Rozzie Bound refers to the binding of the physical books we love, the tactile experience of holding them in our hands.
We shop locally
We’re passionate about our quirky neighborhood. We cherish its diversity of residents with varied experiences, backgrounds, cultures, ideas, and beliefs. Rozzie Bound refers to Roslindale as a destination for shopping locally and investing in our neighbors instead of big box stores and retail giants.
We grow community
We’re passionate about strengthening democracy and community. We believe a local co-op bookstore can bring neighbors together. Rozzie Bound refers to the fact that we are all bound together as members of one community.
