McIntyre & Moore to Move, Downsize

The Somerville News reported yesterday that Davis Square's used book mainstay, McIntyre & Moore, will not be renewing the lease on their current space and plan to relocate as of 1 April. "Diminishing sales and a changing consumer attitude towards used books have contributed to the store’s decision to downsize after almost ten years at their Elm Street location. No decision has been made as to where they will end up, although the owners hope to relocate within walking distance to 'try and remain as local as possible.'"

Always sad news to hear of bookstore woes, especially from your own city.
