Burlingame Books Inc. Closing

Books Inc. in Burlingame CA will close in early 2019, with CEO and president Michael Tucker saying, “We are saddened to leave our long term customers in Burlingame, but changes in the retail environment on Burlingame Avenue have made it untenable to remain.” The local chain has ten other locations in the San Francisco Bay Area, and will attempt to transfer affected employees to other locations when possible. They will also try to move book clubs, events, and special programming to other locations, and hope “to continue the offsite relationships with libraries, schools and other organizations” at their Palo Alto and Mountain View branches.
