Main Street Books

Sad, sadder and saddest news.  Just last week Vicki Erwin, co-owner of the independent bookstore Main Street Books in St. Charles, Missouri announced that unless a buyer can be found the store will close on January 31st, 2014.  I have to say, this is not on my birthday list so I hope that they find a buyer.

My precious son offered to take out a loan (I think he was eyeing a particular relative) and run the store.  Main Street Books is consistently in the black.  How sad that we may loose a solvent independent simply because they can’t find a buyer.

Pass on the word to any and all, because, while I understand that Vicki wants to retire, I can’t imagine Main Street without this store.  Find a buyer and you never have to get me a birthday present again.  Promise.






  1. So sad… there are so few bookstores left, I hate to see another one go away.

    • The saddest part is that this one doesn’t have to go away. It is a solid business in need of a new owner.
