California Bookstore to Close...Just Shy of Their 30th Anniversary


Here's a report on the imminent closing of the Book Rack in Lodi, CA. Co-owners Charlotte and Cecil Brewer were looking forward to celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of their store this summer but now it's slated for closure. The reason...competition from the "killer Bs"(B&N and Borders), a term coined by Bill Maxwell, former owner of the now defunct Maxwell's Bookmark in Stockton.
