MAY 2016 UPDATE

by Don Hartley on 05/05/16

After several months in our NEW location we are still struggling to get customers in the door. What we saved in rent by moving we have lost in foot traffic. Please help us spread the word. We are the ONLY independent Book Store in Broomfield so we know its NOT competition that's hurting us, it is lack of awareness. With over 60,000 Broomfield residents it seems we could attract a few more people each day. Tell your friends and families. SHARE our Facebook page. We really need your help.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: BOOKSTORE CLOSING

by Don Hartley on 09/01/15

As we have indicated in the past, we have been searching for a new more affordable location with improved customer traffic. Unfortunately we have exhausted all options and our lease is up 10/31/2015 (Happy Halloween!)

We regret having to close Broomfield's ONLY independent bookstore, but despite our loyal customer base, sales and traffic at this location are not sufficient to offset annual increases in rent for retail space in the Broomfield market. Ironically with several Big Box stores sitting empty, property management companies remain inflexible in negotiating a rate affordable for a business like ours.

For almost 3 years as Coyote Ridge Books (and 3 prior years as Calico) it has been a struggle to generate enough business. Without adequate sales, no employees could be hired and no dollars were available for advertising. The loss of the anchor Target store in 2011 caused a 30-40% drop in customer traffic. It remains at that lower level even after the new tenant, At Home, moved in.

The book business in general has changed dramatically. Over the past decade, the internet, E-Books, E-Readers, Barnes & Noble and Amazon have come to dominate the industry. More Independent bookstores are closing every year. The unfortunate reality is without cheap rent and good traffic, independent bookstores cannot survive. The ones still in business have either great locations, own their own building, or are partnered with a compatible business (coffee shop). We have been unable to leverage any of those three items.

You are receiving this letter because you have a store credit account that will have to be redeemed prior to our closing. In order to best accommodate our customers, we are waiving our normal policy of the “50% copay” in order to avoid any unplanned expense for you in using your credit. For a limited time you may fully redeem your credit for full value in books at NO charge. (We still reserve some books that are NOT allowed to be purchased with credit, but over 90% of our inventory is up for grabs).

When you brought books in for credit, the concept was simple: Get rid of Books you DON'T want and trade them for books you DO want. Now is the time to take home Books you DO want while our inventory is fully stocked. As we begin to clear our shelves, the selection will suffer, so come in as soon as you can.

If you cannot or do not want to use your credit, you can designate it for a local school. We will send Gift Certificates to that school for students/teachers to select books using the credit you designate. No charge.

We have struggled with this decision, but it is now necessary to pull the plug,

Sincere Thanks,

Don Hartley (owner)
