Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that many independently owned businesses rely on the holiday shopping season to bring in a significant portion of their annual sales. Bad news for those Seattle area stores that recently found themselves closed for days on end due to flooding and power outages.
ParkPlace Books in Kirkland, Washington, is one such store. According to an email from the two owners (both women), the store was flooded and in the dark for many days. But they’re up and running now, back to business as usual — except for the fact that they have a lot of sales to catch up on. So if you’re near the east side and have some lit gifts to pick up, show ParkPlace Books some love.
