Re: “The Know Bookstore's future: unknown

Whether those in the triangle area are aware but The Know Bookstore has met simmilar fates in Charlotte an d Greensboro. I know about Greensboro in particular. After gracing the local scence for years in the gate city. Yhe Know Bookstore was force to close because of a similar landlord issue. I suspect that the same thing happened in Charlotte.

The store was located across from N.C. A&T State University. Which is an Historically Black University. (HBCU) It also was just a few blocks away from Bennett College which is another Historically Black College. Charlotte has Johnson C. Smith also another HBCU.

I am told that the students at these schools were all very supportive of the Know Booksore and that its demise has left a large vacuum especially from a cultural and educational perpective.

In the United States as a whole small Bookstores in general have been in decline. Barnes and Noble along with Borders have contributed to this phenomenon.
