Last year I posted about the excellent publication store GmbH Shop in Glasgow. Since then Neil and Jamie have moved the store over to a new space in The Lighthouse, just off the busy Buchanan Street, right in the heart of the city centre. Here is a release from the website:
“GmbH opened October 2010 in Glasgow as a specialist publication shop focusing on magazines and periodicals. After our successful residency at the Modern Institute Gallery, GmbH has at last found a new home in Glasgow. The shop will now open in on the ground floor, just a few steps off Buchanan Street.
At the beginning of the shop’s journey, our goal was to test whether it was possible for an independent publication retailer to survive in the city. We were overwhelmed with the response and support we received. We think the Lighthouse, one of the Glasgow’s architectural highlights, is a natural home for GmbH.
We will continue to stock the wide range of bespoke publishing; art, fashion, design, film, music, lifestyle, culture and affairs, with the same in-store expertise, enthusiasm and knowledge. But now we are in a permanent spot, we plan to expand our range of publications; independent books, magazines from every corner and fold of the earth, and an ever changing selection of zines published locally and internationally. There is a huge amount of exciting publishing out there and we hope to bring the best of it to Glasgow.
The new shop will open in July. Details on opening and launch date will follow shortly.
Be sure to check it out when it opens next month. GmbH will be stocking the latest issue of The New Order.
