Modern Times Bookstore losing its lease, seeking new digs

They’re getting kicked out of their current spot, but all is not lost:

While this is sad, and happening more abruptly than any of us thought, it also offers us an opportunity to become a smaller store more focused on the needs and interests of our core customer base.

What a kickass silver lining! Read on.
