I wrote about Premier a few weeks ago. I went there last week, because it was close to the end of April and I wanted to visit one last time, if the bookstore would no longer exist.
The good news is that Premier is going to exist. I asked Mr. Shanbagh and he said that the store would remain in the current location for a month or two. About a new location he said that he’d not yet made up his mind on where to go, but that he had one or two options. I felt like dancing when I heard the news but thankfully for everyone, I didn’t.
I still feel sad that the bookstore will have to move from its fantastic, current location of Church street, but this is better than no bookstore at all.
PS: In a somewhat related note, another second-hand bookstore has cropped up on Church street. Thi’s one’s closer to St. Mark’s road and a stone’s throw away from Premier, depending on your arm strength and the size, weight of the stone.
