BWB’s business model has always been to be an online marketplace for used books to promote literacy worldwide. The operation of one retail storefront does not align with this business model or our strategic vision to grow our online marketplaces. Therefore, we have made the difficult decision to close our retail location in Goshen, Indiana which was the only location where we would offer a pickup option.
The retail location will be closed starting March 12, 2019, through Friday, March 15, 2019, as we prepare to re-open to the public on Saturday for our clearance sales event. The sales event will be every Friday and Saturday in March as long as we have inventory to sell; it is likely we will sell through our inventory quickly in the first few sale days. The store will close permanently no later than March 30, 2019.
We are grateful for our 10 years as part of the Goshen community and are thankful to all of our local, loyal customers and supporters.
