The Washington Post reports:
“Politics and Prose, the iconic independent bookstore on Connecticut Avenue NW that has held on against withering competition from Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com and now even Costco, will soon announce what customers and employees have long feared: The place is for sale.”
“We’re not just looking for a buyer,” Meade said. “It’s about someone to continue our legacy.” Cohen added: “Our legacy of playing an important role in this community.”
So hopefully the new owners will keep Politics & Prose located at 5015 Connecticut Ave, NW the great bookstore it is today.
Back in Sept. ’08 I asked folks where they bought their books and 9% said Politics & Prose.
