For book lovers this new year has come bearing gifts, national capital's iconic Cafe Turtle, part of Full Circle Bookstore enterprise, is all set to open its doors once again this month in Khan market, just one step away from its original location.
This time the bookshop will open up in shop number 24, right next to its original shop number 23. Priyanka Malhotra, director of Cafe Turtle said, We are excited to be back, we will have the cafe on the second floor and are hopeful that outdoor seating would be permitted. The new store will have a bigger section for children's books. We are not going back to the same location, we hope to recreate our signature look with the blue and green theme, wooden flooring and a balcony, she added. Given that the pandemic is far from being completely over, Cafe Turtle will take all precautions and follow all SOPs. The tables at the cafe will be sanitised after every order and the bookshop will be sanitised every hour. We would be maintaining a register of everyone coming in so that we have a record. It would be mandatory to wear masks,” Priyanka explained. The bookstore will open by mid-January. Sanjeev Mehra, President of Khan Market Traders Association said, We at Khan market are ready to welcome Cafe Turtle with open arms. He elaborated on business returning to Khan Market. The myth that business in Khan Market is going down is now over. Not only Cafe Turtle, but even others are also now looking at opening in Khan Market. The kind of business people get in Khan Market is difficult to replicate elsewhere, Mehra said.
Sanjeev Mehra is confident of business returning to normalcy in first half of 2021. Cafe Turtle had announced the closing down of its Khan Market outlet in the middle of the pandemic in June, which was followed by many others too exiting the tony market because of the impact of the pandemic and the lockdown.
