Book World to Close All 45 Stores

Wisconsin-based Book World says it’s closing all of its 45 stores across seven states, putting 325 people out of work.

The company says it made the decision based on a shift in consumer preference as more and more people gravitate toward online shopping.

The liquidation sales are set to begin Thursday.

Book World has seven locations in Michigan, including St. Ignace and Sault Ste. Marie.
