Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
I’m a St. Louis boy, deep down, born & raised, so this hits me in the old solar plexus.
On May 1st we were given a lease termination notice and have LESS THAN 60 DAYS to move out because a developer has purchased the property which we have leased for over 30 years! They plan to demolish the historic building (built in 1863) to make room for an E-Z storage facility. We have tried everything in our power to save the building by trying to purchase and remodel/restore the house and the surrounding property ourselves. But we have been unsuccessful in obtaining necessary funding and now the eleventh hour is upon us. At this point even if the City of Rock Hill stops the development or moves the existing structure, the bookstore IS BEING EVICTED.
If you can drop them a few bucks, or spread the word, please do.

UPDATE: I just donated $50 to the cause, which earns me an autographed photo of “Blake” the store cat!
