Well no way around it, this sucks. Last night The Hill is Home reported: “According to their social media manager, the closure is the owners’ personal decision and the Fredericksburg, Virginia, store will still be open.”
Riverby’s website says:
“Riverby Books DC will be closing. Please come and buy some handfuls (or armfuls) of books and use your store credit!
We are NO LONGER BUYING BOOKS.”
Some may recall that back in 2015 Riverby Books had closed after their owner, Mr. Cymrot, was hit by truck and killed. Fortunately they were able to reopen later that year. This is a serious bummer.
