'Emblematic Bookstore' in Athens, Greece, to Close

The Eleftheroudakis bookstore in Athens, Greece, will close September 30 "after 21 years in the central location and 100 years in business," according to the Greek Reporter, which noted that the Eleftheroudakis family "started in the book business in 1868 and opened its first store at Syntagma Square in 1918. The famous 24-volume Eleftheroudakis encyclopedia found its place in countless homes and schools." The chain's central Athens store, occupying eight floors, was the last outlet still operating following the closure of some two dozen branches in recent years.
