Today is the final day for the much-loved Bodhi Tree Bookstore in West Hollywood. Closure has been a long time coming, but the store has a loyal customer base built up over 41 years. The owners began looking to sell a couple of years ago, came close to a deal a couple of months ago, and for the past few weeks there have been stories about the final clearance sale. "We are continuing to talk to people interested in the Bodhi Tree Bookstore legacy. We are hopeful for a reincarnation of a physical store in a few months at a new location," co-founders Stan Madson and Phil Thompson, who met working at Douglas Aircraft in the 1960s, wrote this week on the Bodhi Tree website.
Doors close this evening at 5:30.
