I consider it sad news any time a bookstore closes. But at least we as consumers can seek some kind of solace in their going-out-of-business sales, right?
My personal favorite book store, the Book Outlet, is closing four of its locations. Thankfully, the main location on Niagara Falls Boulevard in North Tonawanda inside the majestic Wurlitzer building will remain open. But four others will be gone by January, maybe even the end of this month. Until then, they're selling their entire inventory at 80 percent off or more.
Stores are located in the Tops Plaza on Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo, the Northtown Plaza on Sheridan Drive in Amherst, the Southgate Plaza on Union Road & Seneca Street in West Seneca and at 2429 Military Road in Niagara Falls. Another location, on Maple Road in Williamsville, moved to Transit Road before closing this summer.
Two local Borders Express stores are closing as well. Stores at Boulevard Mall in Amherst and Eastern Hills Mall in Clarence will shutter by January. Those stores are currently trimming prices by up to 30 percent.
