Old Books on Front St. temporarily closed

Old Books on Front St. is temporarily closed due to structural safety concerns. We are very sorry for the inconvenience. We have just been given notice to vacate the building. At this point we do not know how long the repairs process will take. We plan to reopen in the same location as quickly as possible. We would like to say that our landlord has been very pro-active and concerned with everyone’s s safety and we could not be more grateful for all his help and generosity. We would also like to say that we are deeply moved by the immediate outpouring of support and concern we have received in the few short hours since we received this news. Thank you so much to everyone. Our immediate concern is to get the upstairs tenets relocated as quickly and safely as possible. We would also like to say that we are deeply committed to our wonderful Historic Downtown and to the Historic Preservation Movement. Whatever our long term out come it will include a continued presence in Historic Downtown Wilmington. Again, we are very sorry to all of our long time and loyal patrons for the inconvenience, we look forward to seeing you soon. We will post updates as more information becomes available.
Many thanks for the love and support
The Rohler Family.
