Del Mark Bookstore & The Bookery Nook to Close

While the eBook market is flourishing, some brick-and-mortar booksellers are struggling. Two bookstores have announced that they will close.

The Bookery Nook in Colorado will close its doors on August 31st. When it first opened three years ago, the Denver store operated solely as a bookstore. The owners added the ice cream parlor in the hopes of drawing in more customers.

Del Mark Bookstore in Texas will shut down after 62 years of selling books. The owners, Jerry and Vera McCord, feel that the store cannot compete with two other local competitors and Internet sellers. After the inventory has been completely sold off, the McCords plan to sell the building as well. (via Publishers Lunch)
