Thank you, Antara Kundra, for your thoughtful comment. Yes, the owners were/are terribly sad to lose the bookstore that they struggled so bravely to keep afloat for many years, donating their time, never taking salaries. Their lives went in other directions — both received big promotions at their paying jobs, jobs they love, and one had a baby. They knew it was time to let the bookstore go. How wonderful it would have been if they’d been able to find a buyer!
