Roving Swamplot photographer Candace Garcia spots a for sale sign up at the Libreria Española on the north side of West Alabama between Stanford and Audubon:
I know the owner/manager was elderly, but watching him in the mornings get his shop ready and opening the gates was really a nice thing to see. I’m hoping he is not ill or deceased. It’s always sad to see small businesses close.
Who said it’s closed?
Keller Williams agent Diego Jaramillo’s listing indicates it’s the bookstore owners who are putting the property up for sale. The 1,344 sq. ft. concrete-block building has been listed for $459,000 since the beginning of February. It sits on a 74-by-120-ft. lot.
If you want to buy the business, that’s for sale separately:
- 620 West Alabama St. [HAR]
