EsoWon Books Might Close

It's always sad when one of our favorite businesses close.

And come Christmas 2007, there's a possibility that EsoWon Books, L.A.s well-known black-owned and black-focused bookstore might close.

Article here in the Los Angeles Wave: Black-themed bookstore faces possible closure.

They cite the usual culprit: not being able to compete with the discounts offered by chain stores and the internet, and a smaller amount of mass orders from local libraries and public schools.
