We have reached the last page of our story. It was interesting, it was exciting, it was enriching, it was heartbreaking, and now it is over. Farewell to the good times, the good books, the good people who shared our story. May you always be able to find a place that does not censor or stifle the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and free thought.
We have decided to extend our sale of All Books One Dollar Each. We are still bringing books out of storage and we want to give everyone a chance to get some great books. We’ll be going to Mid-December, or until the books are all gone! Everyday 12-8. Great, cheap gifts for the holidays, give someone their own library this year!
We are open every day for the next week. All Books are One Dollar! We are also selling all fixtures, we still have some shelving and other miscellaneous items available, including our check out counter. We’ll be there every day from 12-8, including Thanksgiving. Come find gifts for everyone you know, for rock bottom prices!

-The Archive is owned by Amber Dover, Tom Freeman, and Steven Hoffmann. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Says Hoffmann: “We had a rewarding four years, and hopefully, we made an impression on the literary community. We treasured every book that came across our desk, and we are grateful to our loyal regular customers kept us going. Now we’re joining The Immortals—Amitin’s, A Collector’s Bookshop, Pudd’nhead, Library, Ltd., and all the rest of the bookstores of times remembered.”
Adds Dover: “Keep reading, Saint Louis.”
