Goodbye to an Old Friend

We are sad to announce that one of our beloved fellow bookstores, Reader's Cove, will be closing its doors permanently this Friday. If you have time and a hankering for a new book, please visit them sometime this week to say goodbye and help them ease the process of going out of business. They need all the community support they can get.

This serves as a reminder to us all about the tenuousness of local businesses we often take for granted. The cafe down the street or quirky clothing store may be our absolute favorites, but without our support as a community they cannot survive. At times it may be a bit more expensive or slightly out of the way, but these places provide the unique flavor of Fort Collins and give so much back to their community. Over the years, Reader's Cove has joined us in supporting Fort Collins Reads among other non-profit organizations based right in Fort Collins. Please help Reader's Cove now in their time of need, and remember to support local businesses as often as possible and encourage your friends to do the same. Not just Old Firehouse Books, but any locally owned store in Fort Collins! Every purchase you make will give so much back to this town!
