And so it goes…

It’s official: the Jeffery Amherst Bookshop, my place of employment for the past 10+ years, will close its doors within the next few weeks. This economic climate became the perfect storm we couldn’t survive: with the confluence of the credit crunch (no financing for potential buyers), the changing paradigm of the book & textbook business, and of course the ever-present demons of B & N and Amazon… well, barring a White Knight arriving on the scene with a Big Fat Wad of Cold Hard Cash, we’re done.

  1. Oh, that stinks. I’m sorry. 😦

  2. Thanks, Anne. It really does.

    Mais oui, Marianne — merci!

  3. I’m sorry to hear about your shop. It seemed like such a charismatic place… what’s the next adventure?

  4. That remains to be seen, Whitney….with 2nd child due in 7 1/2 weeks, that might be it!
