Founded in 2015, Battle Creek Books, Battle Creek, Mich., will close next March when the lease ends unless owners Jim and Ginny Donahue can sell the store, according to the Battle Creek Enquirer. The 2,000-square-foot store is in downtown Battle Creek and sells new and used books.
The Donahues just turned 60, and "we're exhausted," Jim Donahue said. "It took an enormous amount of work to get it here." He added that the couple want "to continue our vision" by selling the store.
Jim Donahue is a geriatric specialist who formerly worked at the local Veterans Administration hospital.
