Independent Booksellers See Opportunity in Southeast Michigan

Monday, September 9, 2013


Bookbound is the third independent general-interest bookshop to open in Ann Arbor, and the second to open this year. Two years ago this month Borders closed its remaining shops after a drawn out liquidation process. Peter and Megan Blackshear are the owners of Bookbound. WDET's Laura Weber-Davis talks about the grand opening of their store over the weekend. Weber-Davis also speaks with American Booksellers Association CEO Oren Teicher about the changing tides for Mom-n-Pop bookshops.
