Bluestockings Cooperative, the collectively-run activist center, community space and feminist bookstore at 116 Suffolk St., reopened yesterday after a two-week closure to repair the sidewalk outside the storefront here between Rivington and Delancey.

The work was originally expected to take just two days.

During the temp closure, fans of Bluestockings helped support the space by ordering books online and becoming members.
Meanwhile, in-person events return here next month, including author talks.

Bluestocking, which debuted on the LES in 1999, is open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. (with a 1 p.m. start on Mondays).
