Libreria Martinez Not Closing, But Moving :-)

One good bit of news to report in this young year: Librería Martinez, the main stomping grounds for Macarthur Genius-winning barber-turned-bookstore owner Reuben Martinez isn't closing as previously feared, but moving next door from their current location. Over the New Year's Day weekend, Martinez wrote to customers in a mass e-mail that the store will reopen February 1 at 1200 N. Main St., Ste. D, with the same hours and phone number (714-973-7900) as the old store.

"Thank you all , and rest assured that as we enter the new year, we do so with an optimistic view of things to come and a revitalized commitment to our journey that started many years ago," Martinez concluded. "We hope we can count on your continued support in helping bring literacy and a promise for a brighter tomorrow to all the members of our community."

The old location is still open, so be a mensch: visit, buy, and buy some more.
