For DC Area Children's Bookstore, an Unhappy End


A Likely Story , the beloved Old Town (Alexandria, VA) children's bookstore, won the industry's prestigious Pannell Award and was voted the most outstanding children's bookstore in the nation. For two decades, the bookstore, and especially its children's story time, were fixtures in the lives of many families.

On Nov. 21, A Likely Story hosted a deeply discounted "thank you" sale and closed its doors forever.
