Bookbound Bookstore will be closing permanently
Bookbound Bookstore will be closing permanently this summer – most likely in late June or early July. Our lease will be up, and we are ready to move on to the next chapter of our lives.
We have been considering this decision for a couple of years. For the record, this is not due to the pandemic, nor is it due to rising rents (we discussed the possibility of extending our lease and our landlords' offer was surprisingly generous). We made this decision for personal reasons.
As much as we love books, the day-to-day of the store, and all of you, it's time to focus on our family, friends, and all of the other things we've set aside. We opened and operated our dream bookstore for nearly 8 years and we consider this a success! We hope you see it that way too, and can understand and respect our decision.
Please see our blog for more details and information about our plans for the coming weeks:
