Edmonds Bookshop sold to longtime employee
Last updated 8/26/2021 at 10:33am
The Edmonds Bookshop on Fifth Avenue South is being sold.
But – happy news here – co-owners Mary Kay Sneeringer and David Brewster say the new owner knows a thing or two about the biz: assistant manager Michelle Bear.
She will take ownership of the business in the next few weeks, and Sneeringer and Brewster will continue to work part-time and assist in the transition.
Edmonds Bookshop has been in continuous operation since April 1972. Sneeringer and Brewster purchased the bookstore in 2001 from Susan Hildebrandt (who remains a valuable staff member) and her late husband, Barry.
