ABC Book & Comic Emporium closing forever

We told you earlier this fall that ABC Book & Comic Emporium at Broadway and Granville will be closing its doors for good. Now the closing date has been set for November 30, 2012. Vancouver’s oldest used bookstore is still packed from floor to ceiling with  books and comics but after 65 years in business, those shelves will soon sit empty.

We touched upon what it means to be losing an institution like ABC Book & Comic Emporium, however, with the increase in digital comic and book sales, independent bookstores will have a tough time surviving the new economy.
