San Diego bookstore Mysterious Galaxy, which was in danger of closing after 27 years of business, has found new owners and will remain open for the foreseeable future. Jenni Marchisotto & Matthew Berger purchased the bookstore and signed a five-year lease on a new location. They said,
We are so excited about our new roles as part of the Mysterious Galaxy family. When we attended the holiday party last Saturday countless of you came up to us and thanked us for saving the store. We are incredibly grateful for your support. One thing we would like you to know above all else is that we, like you, are fans of Mysterious Galaxy. We love Mysterious Galaxy for the same reasons you do and know that it will survive, will be saved, only because of your continued support. When they founded Mysterious Galaxy twenty-seven years ago, Terry, Maryelizabeth, and Jeff also founded a community of readers connected by a passion for reading. As we begin this next chapter, we want to keep all that makes Mysterious Galaxy special while continuing to expand its presence in the community.
The store will remain open at its current Balboa Ave location until mid-January 2020, after which it will move to 3555 Rosecrans St. Suite #107 San Diego CA 92110. For more information, see the Mysterious Galaxy website.
