The Boring Store

The Boring Store is a new secret spy shop in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago. The store is actually a front for 826CHI, a non-profit writing center for students 6-18 and is part of the 826 National writing centers founded by Dave Eggers, including San Francisco’s Pirate Store/826 Valencia. Check out Brad Flora’s excellent write-up and photos of The Boring Store in The Methods Reporter.

Back in August I wrote about Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. which is another faux storefront for a 826 writing center. Seattle has one as well, the Greenwood Space Travel Supply Co.
