Book shop to close

By Benalla Ensign

Leading Edge Books Benalla is about to close its doors for the last time.

Trading since 1999, the shop is likely to cease operations within the next six months.

Store manager Nicole Schulz said they would take orders for new books until the end of May.

‘‘We will not be reopening as our landlord (has) refused a lease extension,’’ Ms Schulz said.

‘‘We will miss all our wonderful customers, many of whom have become lifelong friends.’’

All books, cards and games are currently discounted.

Shelving, bookcases and card spinners are for sale as well.

Leading Edge Books is also offering a discount of 40 per cent on all new books.

Ms Schulz said she would like to thank all of their wonderful customers, on behalf of Bev and Ron, for their support during the past 19 years.
