Good morning and happy #openingday Detroit! For an optimal Opening Day experience: be safe, keep warm, don't make a mess you don't plan on cleaning up, and no shots before noon 👌
A note from Mr. King on the final closing of Big Bookstore 💙
We're sad to announce that today will be the last day to visit Big Bookstore on 5911 Cass Ave. Cass Corridor won't be the same without it, largely due to store manager Bill Foulkes' large personality, but we've reached the end of an era. So have a beer to Big Bookstore tonight and thanks to all those that kept it going for so long ❤️
"Certain things they should stay the way they are. You ought to be able to stick them in one of those big glass cases and just leave them alone. I know that's impossible, but it's too bad anyway." -Holden Caulfield
We have all the classics.
