While many independent bookstores are struggling to keep their doors open, New York City bookstore The Strand is doing just fine.
The retailer tweeted on Christmas Eve that they had the best sales day ever, illustrating that print books and indie bookstores are still alive and well.
Bookstores are not dead, Part II: Yesterday we had our best sales day in the history of 86 years at the store. So thankful for all of you.
