I would have thought the mark up on the schoolbooks would have kept them going for years.

I think the days of the brick and mortar bookshop are numbered with the likes of Amazon.

Seconded.

Been a Cork landmark for donkey's years. Any idea why it's closing. Always had some great books. And Cribs for Christmas too if you're that way inclined. Time was it was THE go-to place when looking for particular school books as well. Has Ray Lloyd retired or what's going on?

Sure Oliver Plunkett St needs a new gaff for a coffee house and/or cheap clothes store, someone has to make way!
