Partners & Crime to Close

More sad bookstore news. New York City's Partners & Crime has posted the following on their website:

After 18 years in the shop on Greenwich Avenue, Partners & Crime Mystery Booksellers is closing its doors on September 20th. 

We've had a great run and have enjoyed helping a generation of readers find the books they love. 

We've had a lot of fun, learned a tremendous amount, and enjoyed our time with all of you - customers, authors and publishers. 

Stop by, reminisce and check out our THANK YOU sale -- and maybe find that favorite title you really can't live without! Couldn't have done it without you! 

With our great appreciation to all , and a special thank you to Bernard Charles, our landlord, for all their support. 

All of us at Partners & Crime

I personally feel sick about this. Partners and Crime is in my vicinity. It's the one crime fiction bookstore in walking distance in my environment and was a last hold-out in a city where many independent bookstores have closed.

It's a sorry sign that one of the best bookstores in New York has to close. What a harbinger of things to come, with conglomerates taking over the bookselling industry.
