Gibson's reduces store hours

In an email to consumers and supporters of his store, Gibson's Bookstore owner Michael Herrmann told shoppers that the store would be ending Sunday hours until the fall 2009 and reducing some weekday nighttime hours.
According to Herrmann, for the last 15 months, the store has been opened every night until 8 p.m. except on Sundays, in an effort to adjust and be more flexible to consumer shopping habits.
However, the store will now only be open until 6 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The later hours will continue on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, with Herrmann noting, "Lots of stores are open late Thursday and Friday--come check them all out!"
He called the Sunday hours "no longer feasible" since "folks just don't seem to come downtown" on Sundays.
Sundays are supposed to be a day of rest anyway so the Gibson's staff can take advantage of the day off to recoup. Here's hoping its a prosperous New Year for the store!
