When Julie Beddingfield was considering whether to open a bookstore in downtown Haddonfield, she crunched numbers, listened to experts, and studied pedestrian flow. She also pondered the wisdom of leaving behind a law career for brick-and-mortar bookselling in a smartphone, Snapchat world. "So I asked Remi Fortunato, the borough's retail recruiter, whether I was crazy," Beddingfield recalls. Says Fortunato, who works for a nonprofit downtown promotional agency called the Partnership for Haddonfield: "I was honest with her. I told her that a bookstore would be an excellent asset and was needed, but that she couldn't just open it. She'd have to work it. " That hasn't been a problem for Beddingfield, whose Inkwood Books - a cheerful literary oasis for the whole family - debuted in June on Kings Highway East.
