A Bookstore Reborn

Some of you will remember this post from January. I told you about our local bookstore’s roof collapsing due to a record-huge snowstorm. The entryway looked like this:


Well today, almost a year later, the store is reborn!


The shelves are full….

The crowds are back….


And that lovely store is now offering great deals on books while giving back to the community in its usual way. Click here for the article.

(Did I mention they have random drawings a day where two lucky customers go check out only to discover their books are complimentary?)

Welcome back, Bookmans. Flagstaff has missed you!

  7. That's wonderful! Wow, and with the economy, it would've been easy for them to close shop.

  18. That first picture is crazy! I'm so glad they were able to come back. Sounds like a lovely place. I love bookstores. I got to go to one on Thursday night with *just my husband*. It was so much fun to browse without having to worry about my two-year-old emptying out entire shelves of books while my back was turned. :) But I still spent all my time in the kids section, salivating.

    Thanks for sharing this story!
