Closings :: Fremont Place Books, Seattle

After 22 years, Fremont Place Books will be closing its doors. Owner Henry Burton writes, “Local, independent bookstores are so much more than places to purchase a product. They are centers for inspiration, information sharing, and community building. As such I have felt a tremendous responsibility to keep the store open. I am well aware that closing the store is not only a loss for me personally, but also a great loss to Fremont.”

Fremont Place Books will have an open house on its last day, Feb. 27, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., to celebrate, as Burton wrote, “all that is great about books, bookselling, and being part of a community.”
