We knew it was coming—Rizzoli Bookstore is being forced out of its beautiful home on 57th Street to make way for new apartment developments. Now, the New York Times is reporting that its final day there is next Friday, April 11th.
On the bright side, the store is offering 40% off all of its titles in preparation for the move. That includes some great fashion tomes, including Jewels by JAR and the latest book on Oscar de la Renta. Stop by while you can for an excellent coffee table addition.
