Stationery Shop with Familiar Initials Pops Up at ATC

Parker & Otis’ P&O Paper Launches as Part of the PopUp Series, Aug. 1-28

(Durham, N.C.) – July 25, 2019 – One of Durham’s most beloved institutions, Parker & Otis, is launching a retail shop at the PopUp @ American Tobacco Campus, August 1-28.

As an extension of the popular retail shop within Parker & Otis’ famed restaurant, P&O Paper will focus on those items dedicated to the tactile experience of putting pen (or pencil) to paper.  

“I am never without a pile of assorted notebooks and an array of pens and pencils somewhere close by” says Jennings Brody, owner of P&O Paper. “And really it’s absolutely just the loveliest thing to open your mailbox and find a handwritten postcard or note waiting for you. That’s why I am so excited for the opportunity to open a little a shop dedicated to writing more on paper!”

P&O Paper extends Parker & Otis’ retail offerings alongside sister stores Tiny and Chet Miller.
