The Last Word Bookstore, which opened last May in Fort Worth, Tex., will close Sunday. On Facebook earlier this week, owner Paul Combs wrote: "It has been widely reported that 2017 has been a hard year for brick-and-mortar retail stores, and this has been particularly true for us over the past several months. Sales have steadily declined to the point that it is no longer viable for us to continue the business; therefore, the store will be closing on Sunday, June 18. We have explored every possible avenue to avoid this, to no avail.... I know this is news none of us welcome, but I want to thank all of you for your support over the past year. It has been a life-changing time for me, and the best part has been getting to know so many of you."
