Good-bye Bookstore


Despite being located on the bustling stretch of 3rd Street east of La Cienega, she is convinced the bookstore lost business to online bookseller Amazon. She and her staff might spend 30 minutes with a customer, she says, only to have them write down the recommendations and leave — to buy the books over the Internet, she thinks. "Bookstores are suffering," she said. "It's pretty discouraging." And with the current economic climate, the bookstore faced insurmountable challenges.

We had a customer today complain about having to pay full price for a book. Economic times are hard, I know that. But this is the sort of thing that dooms the small business.
