Beloved Ann Arbor Bookstore Reveals New Identity

ANN ARBOR – Nicola’s Books on the West Side of Ann Arbor is now Schuler Books.

The beloved independent bookstore was taken over by Michigan-based book company Schuler Books in 2014, but retained the name given to it by its former owner, Nicola Rooney.

“During the transition, it was decided to keep the name Nicola’s Books. In the years since, however, our store has been a member of the Schuler Books family in all but name,” Schuler Books officials said on Facebook.

But the new name isn’t the only change. Schuler Books Ann Arbor is taking over space from the Old Siam restaurant next door. More space means the addition of a used book section, a larger children’s section and other expanded sections.

Changes will be documented on the store’s social media.

Officials said the Nicola’s purchase was a homecoming for owners of Schuler Books and University of Michigan graduates Bill and Cecile Fehsenfeld. The husband-wife team met while working at Ann Arbor’s Ulrich’s Books at 1200 S. University Ave. and celebrates 40 years of activity this fall.

Schuler Books also has stores in Grand Rapids and Okemos, Michigan.
