Flagship Books is the first independent new and used bookstore in Kansas City, Kansas in several decades. Run by brothers Joel Melgren and Ty Melgren, Flagship Books originally opened in a shipping container in North Kansas City’s Iron District in March 2021. After a successful first year in that small space, the brothers decided to relocate to a larger storefront in the Strawberry Hill neighborhood, where they offer a diverse selection of new and used books.
