Therese here. It’s the second Thursday of the month, which means it’s #IndieThursday–a day dedicated to independent bookstores here and at Beyond the Margins, an esteemed blog we hope you’ll add to your daily visits. I’m honored to introduce a post written by Bob Proehl, Director of Operations at an independent bookstore in Ithaca, NY, called Buffalo Street Books. Buffalo Street Books was in grim circumstances not long ago; it was in a financial crisis and seemed destined to close. But an unboxed idea pulled the bookstore back to its feet, and now it isn’t only surviving–it’s thriving. I know you’ll be equally inspired by Bob’s story, and enjoy not only his post but the Q&A we’ve included with him at the end for those who may consider following in the Buffalo’s footsteps.
