Books, Books, Books

The shipment of 7,000 books has been postponed (thank God), so we do not have to take possession until after the 1st of April. To put it into perspective, that is in the neighborhood of 250 Banker Size boxes.

We also arranged for another 40 boxes from another dealer. They are more non-fiction, rather than collectible fiction. Also, this week we opened an account with a large wholesaler to supply us with Publisher overstocks. These are new books that we can sell at half price. (which, as Martha would say, is a good thing!)

Midtown Books is almost back together, we are putting the finishing touches on it this upcoming week. Thanks to all our regular customers who have put up with the mess the last 2 weeks.

Downtown Books is coming along, with us primarily cleaning out the space right now. We are putting the claims of the HEPA system on the vacuums to the test this week, as we extract 30 years of dust from the walls and floors. We are still shooting for an open date sometime in May...keep you fingers crossed.
