History

Wicked Good Books is a book store, meeting point and destination for residents and visitors to Salem. The last independent bookstore in Salem, Derby Square Bookstore, was going under in the 2010's. Luckily, it was purchased by a local couple, renamed and reopened.

 

The couple remodeled the bookstore, doing away with its well-known floor-to-ceiling stacks of books. The new owners aimed at maintaining the shop's Salem roots and preserving its historic charm as much as possible. Old shelves in the former store were re-purposed to build stairs and create a one-of-a-kind counter.

 

 

The new store inherited the former store’s merchandise too. It also houses an eclectic mix of non-fiction, fiction and a wide collection of local authors. Wicked also keeps up the community engagement by hosting book clubs and readings by local authors.
