You read it right. This isn’t like the Lucky Plaza across the street where it said it’ll be closing starting August. I mean it’s almost September and it’s still open with new shops actually. Not that I’m complaining.
Bookazine owned by Mr. Tho was a second-hand bookshop that I frequent in Dong Khoi St. A few weeks ago, I’ve seen it closed in the middle of the day so I asked one of the guards in the nearby establishments and I was told that Mr. Tho has just had to close for the day and will return the next day.
But alas, today, I saw this:
No more books. No more magazines. And POSTCARDS! I would have to scratch it off my list of places to buy postcards as I’ve written in my old blog entry. 😦
I’m really saddened to see this happen to Mr. Tho who has been there for a quarter of a century. It would have been nice to have spoken to him a bit before he left.
Oh no! That is really really sad.
Maybe you could find someone who knows of his whereabouts and pass on a greetign to him. He may even have some of his old stock you could buy from him??
Such a shame when a business such as this, closes.
