In 2014, long-time OBDC client Laurel Book Store moved to downtown Oakland. We’re thrilled that this business found a great location just across from City Hall in Frank Ogawa Plaza.
Here is an excerpt from our interview with Luan Stauss, owner of Laurel Book Store:
“Luan Stauss, the owner of Laurel Book Store, started her business to build community. She said, “We truly want to be ‘Your Neighborhood Bookstore in Downtown Oakland.’” They chose their tagline, and their customer service focus carefully, so that you’ll want to keep coming back. Laurel Book Store opened thirteen years ago with support from OBDC, so when Luan Stauss was ready to move her business from the Laurel District to Downtown Oakland, OBDC was the natural fit for her expansion support.”
