Post & Courier

A Summerville store that closed earlier in the fall after it couldn't afford the rent in a shopping center that changed hands is now reopening in a new location.

Here Be Books & Games will host its grand reopening Saturday at 810 Travelers Blvd. in Summerville, about a mile from its previous site in Oakbrook Plaza.

The opening coincides with the store's monthly game night, usually held on the first Saturday of every month. Door prizes and refreshments will be offered.

Started in 2005, the board game store is a product of owners Tim and Tina McDuffie. It's open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., with later hours during special events.
