- Sarasota News and Books is the heart of downtown Sarasota, and deserves all of our support. We can support it by buying our books there, and only there. If all the store's fans do that, it will be able to stay in business, I hope.
- It's great to show support, but so far, the media and Facebook coverage have given us everything EXCEPT what we need, and that's to answer the question, "What can we do to help?" Who's the landlord? How can he alter the business somewhat to stay in business (different products, services, what?). Let's look for a solution and not just talk.
- Who is landlord? That's who we need to put pressure on to lower the rent so we can keep this Sarasota landmark.
- Thank you for this story and all of your Downtown coverage. You truly are the voice of Downtown Sarasota, and we need you! Keep up the good work informing the public about all of the great boutiques, shops, restaurants, BOOK SHOPS AND CAFES, etc. Next time someone says they are going to Tampa to shop, please remind them that without their support, there will be a lot of empty spaces on Main Street! This means no parades, no July 4th celebrations, no New Year's Eve, no Farmers Market, no art shows, and so on!
