With great sadness, we must tell you, today, that our business can no longer go on. Having worked so very hard for more than 40 years, you can well understand how devastating this is for us and everyone involved with Book World. We tried to keep Book World afloat, and to be successful, but that was not meant to be. After over 40 years since the opening of our first book store all Book World stores will be closing their doors sometime in early 2018.
The recent national shift in the retail marketplace towards e-commerce has triggered the loss of vital mall anchor stores and a downward spiral in customer counts reducing sales to a level that will no longer sustain our business.
Beginning TODAY we will begin a liquidation sale which will run until all inventory is sold in each store.
We sincerely thank all of our great customers. THANK YOU to each and every one of you!!!. For over 40 years you've supported your local Book World store and in the process a world of people including publishers, distributors, printers, authors, and MANY more! We are all forever grateful!
Please make every effort to continue to support your local bookstores and all other local businesses. We are truly dependent on each other!
