Powell`s bookstore in Lakeview to close

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The small, independent bookstore Powell's fought the good fight on Chicago's North Side.

It outlived the neighborhood megastores Barnes and Noble and Borders, but in the age of Amazon and E-books, it too, is now leaving the neighborhood.

Powell's is closing its store in Lakeview, which has existed since the 1980’s. It will close by the end of June.

The Powell's stores in Hyde Park and University Village will remain open.
