We’ve Been Nominated for an Oakland Indie Award!

OAKLAND INDIE AWARDS, May 18, Oakland Museum of California

LOAKL is delighted to announce we’ve been nominated in this year’s Oakland Indie Awards for Innovative Newcomer! It’s a huge honor to be among many exciting new and established businesses in Oakland, including the amazing Ariana Marbley of Esscents of Flowers — also nominated as an Innovative Newcomer — and the incredible Iam Jahi, nominated in the Social Changemaker category.

“It’s a night when people of all ages, cultures, faiths, and genders come together to cheer on those who make our local economy thrive.”

A big shout out to all who nominated us and  others who have supported our mission — to support independent local bookstores by making it convenient to find books across all local independent stores through the LOAKL.com platform. We’re hoping to make it even more convenient to shop online locally, as an alternative to shopping at distant online retailers.

The Indie Awards always throw a great party with unique foods, delicious drinks, and the best in dancing and shopping, so we hope you’ll join us on May 18th. Held in the the inspiring outdoor space of the Oakland Museum of California, it’s sure to be a magical night.

You can buy tix in advance here. Come show your Oakland love!
