After twenty-one years in business, the Bookshop will most likely close within a year if it doesn't find a buyer, say co-owners Bill Loeser and Linda Saaremaa. Loeser said someone with energy and passion could keep The Bookshop alive. Whether he hands over the reins or liquidates the 150,000-book inventory, Loeser plans to get out of the business by his 65th birthday in September.
"One would like to think that if there's one place a second-hand bookstore could survive, it would be Franklin Street in Chapel Hill," he said. Story from the News Observer.
