After 9 years and 14 days owning the store, years of shopping here prior to that, and at least 6 months of “threatening” to move with no real activity, the end is really truly here. East Side Books will close its doors as of Thursday, August 14. Even though we are moving on to better things hopefully, I HATE transitions and saying good bye, so this part is not fun…except of course for this green carpet that I promise I will never wax nostalgic over. I am not going to say much more except thank you to the wonderful customers and staff that have kept the store alive and kicking through the years. I also owe much to all those previous owners who have left their stamp on the shelves. I treasure so many people who come through the doors, I am just counting on that part continuing at the new store.
I still cannot answer the “when will you be open” question, but I can safely say within the next “few” weeks. Please do come visit us at the new store, and our new website will be up next week as well.
