Brockman's Bookstore

Bernadette Hoyle
Brockman's Bookstore was originally located in the Trust Building. Herbert V. Brockman opened Brockman's Bookstore in May of 1915.  Two years later, his brother Charles Brockmann took over for Herbert who served in the Army, and ran the shop until 1927. The store was famous for selling books, stationery, toys, novelties, magazines, office supplies as well as framing and engraving services. Brockmann went onto become the Assistant Director of the Charlotte Public Library. In 1956, he served as the first manager of the Carolina Room, which is today known as the Robinson-Spangler Carolina Room.
