Pinocchio’s Children’s Bookstore to Close

Pinocchio’s Children’s Bookstore, a Tennessee-based bookseller, will close up shop after 35 years of business.

At this point the two owners, Miriam Epstein (age 73) and Judy Korones (age 80), have reached an advanced age where running the day-to-day operations of the bookstore has become difficult. Owners Judy Korones and Miriam Epstein posted this message on Facebook:

After thirty-five wonderfully satisfying years, we have decided that we will be retiring this fall. We want to reward you for your patronage and support; thus we are announcing that all items in our shop will be 40% off as of Thursday, September 27. We look forward to seeing you at Pinocchio’s and reminiscing about the “good ol’ days”! In the meantime, KEEP READING–BOOKS!! (via Publishers Weekly)
