Tree House Books to Close

treehouse.jpgAfter nearly eight years, independent bookseller Michele Lonergan is closing her Michigan bookstore, Tree House Books.

In August, the bookstore will host a liquidation sale, selling books at a 30 percent discount. Last year eastern Michigan lost a great independent bookstore when Shaman Drum closed in Ann Arbor. According to mlive.com, the bookstore was once named the best west Michigan bookstore by Lake Magazine.

Here’s a sad quote from Lonergan: “We have some wonderful memories of standing room only author events and costume parties, and of course, our midnight Harry Potter events. The one thing the staff has agreed that we will miss the most of all is YOU,our loyal fellow book-loving customers. We want to thank you for your committed patronage, for believing in an independent bookstore when you could get your books cheaper at Walmart.” (Via Publishers Lunch)
