Horizon Books

Christa Rensel

Horizon Books was established in 1961 and is still family owned and operated. That amounts to nearly 50 years of bookselling. in downtown Traverse City.

In that time we’ve grown to three locations in Northern Michigan: retrofitting a JC Penney building in Traverse City, the Milliken’s department store in downtown Cadillac and doubling our size in downtown Petoskey. All of our stores have cozy fireplaces, coffee bars, loooong hours and are in downtown locations.

We view it as our job to say yes to what the Northern Michigan community wants in a bookstore – reading groups, music, helpful staff, convenient (did we mention loooong) hours, support of local authors and a welcoming atmosphere. We hope you consider us to be your “third place,” the place you go to relax , the first being home, the second being work.
