We're in the process of having a moving sale for the bookstore. As anyone who's ever had to move a lot of books, it's very hard moving them, even if it's for a short distance.
The books are $1.50 for the first one, $1 for all the books after that you want to buy, plus shipping and handling if you don't live near Parkville, MD. PM the bookstore's Facebook page with your email and the books you want so we can send you an invoice.
We're currently looking at two spaces along Harford Road in Baltimore. Both will require the first month's rent and the security deposit. We're hoping to sign a lease for one soon.
