This past spring about 5,000 people signed a petition to keep us in business. We are sandwiched between two campus Barnes and Nobles store and blocks away from an Amazon depot. We are the definition of an indie underdog and our continued existence is a symbol of the staying power of local businesses. We have been in business for 57 years. The new owners recently bought the store assets and are committed to keeping the store going, but they don’t have marketing backgrounds. We have plenty of images of the store, the spring protest and events, but I cannot upload them here.
