Lucky Dog Books In Oak Cliff to Close April 1
Well, this is sad news. The mammoth Lucky Dog Books location in Oak Cliff, announced via Facebook this morning that it has reached its final chapter. After a campaign last month to raise money via gift card sales and donations, the Oak Cliff Advocate reports that the used bookstore will shutter April 1. According to the store's post, it sounds as though the landlord didn't have the patience to allow the bookstore more time to raise money and has already rented the space to another tenant.
The bookstore is looking for another spot in the neighborhood for the move, but reports that's not necessarily a hopeful pursuit. It seems that the likelihood of a move relies on support of its regular customers, as the bookstore asks that over the next five weeks, customers rally around the store, spend more time in its shelves and even volunteer to assist with the move in exchange for "book bucks."
