The next time you feel depressed about the future of authors, bookstores or publishing, watch the video embedded above from Half Price Books, How To Build a (New) Bookstore. This time-lapse video shows a bookstore being furnished and stocked from an empty warehouse into a customer-ready store. It’s enough to inspire any book lover.
“We are opening our 113th store on Thursday, and may we just say how grateful we are to be opening stores and not closing them (a thousand thank yous to our customers). To celebrate, we put together this fun video demonstrating all that goes into building and opening a new bookstore– a rare sight these days.”
