Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and thanks for your continued support. We have had piles of used books donated, as well as a good deal of money, both in store and online.
I'm excited to say that we have signed a letter of intent, and will soon sign a lease, for a new retail space downtown. It will be within two blocks of our current location, and will save us over $50,000 a year in occupancy costs!! It is hard to imagine a better outcome in this area.
On the finances side of things, more than a dozen people have come foreword and offered to become part-owners of RiverRun, and dozens more have donated books and money to the cause.
I believe we will have the financing deals wrapped up by the end of November! This means new and exciting books will be flooding into the store in the first week of December, maybe sooner!!
If you are getting up at 2am for Black Friday deals, I'll just say this: We open at 9am. Sorry. But even though we won't be fully stocked yet, we'd love to see you this weekend to kick-off the season right. We will gladly order any books you're interested in purchasing, and have them for you in just three or four business days. And we'll wrap them.
Speaking of which, if you are an expert wrapper (of the grandmotherly type, not the Eminem type), and have some time to spare this season, we have an empty schedule. Get in touch and we'll work out a time for you to volunteer.
Thanks again, everyone, and I will keep you updated.
