From the Southern Illinoisan:
After the recent closure of Bookworm, the appearance of the “For Lease” sign on 710 Bookstore at 819 S. Illinois Ave. was likely a worrying sight for local book-lovers.
But the longstanding college bookstore isn’t shutting its doors — just relocating.
Randy Johnson, who co-owns the business with Dwayne and Kim Summers, said the store is moving to 1051 S. Wall St. in the old Carbondale water treatment plant, which is being redeveloped and remodeled. (The third floor has already been redeveloped as apartments.)
710 Bookstore, which sells Southern Illinois University textbooks and apparel, will be located on the second floor and is slated to reopen there July 1.
