Dear Loyal Customers,
There is a vicious rumor being spread in New London, CT that Bank Square Books is closing. As one of the owners, I can assure you that this is NOT TRUE whatsoever. We are alive and well, thriving with great books and author events, a wonderful and helpful staff and most of all, our loyal customers. Recovery from Tropical Storm Sandy was complete almost six months ago when we reopened on November 16th, 2012, and the Saturday after Thanksgiving was our biggest day of sales ever. Our sales for 2012 were up overall, and we are till going strong.
I don't know where this rumor originated or who is being so spiteful to give it fire but we want to douse this immediately.
IT IS NOT TRUE.
Our store has been the anchor store in downtown Mystic for more than 25 years and, thanks to all of your support, we plan to be here for many more. Come and see us anytime, visit our website for future author events and staff picks, and pay a visit on Saturday, May 4th for the Mystic Stroll and support our local authors at the store.
From you locally owned and fiercely independent bookstore,
President, New England Independent Booksellers Association
