Balderdash Books & Art, 8536 Greenwood Ave. N., will close at the end of May 2012.
Owner Vanessa Ormiston tells us the used bookstore is for sale, and she hopes someone will buy it before she closes.
A number of factors have contributed to my decision to close, some business related and some personal, but I do believe that Greenwood can support Balderdash Books if a new owner steps in. I will start closure sales in the early spring and I encourage my customers to invite family and friends to help them spend down their credit. I will also have the annual Buy 1 get 1 FREE Cookbook sale in November and the 25% OFF Holiday sale in December. I will be updating my stock until I close. I will also be taking books in for credit (you can use your credit towards 50% of a purchase) until early spring but I am advising customers to not bring in more than they can spend in the last 3 months. At the end of May it will be the 7th year Balderdash Books has been in business and I believe the 25th year in total for the bookstore. Thank you Greenwood!
