3/24/09: Sam Weller's Zion Bookstore
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – For nearly 50 years the Weller family has been selling books on Salt Lake City's Main Street. Earlier this month the family announced Sam Weller's Zion Bookstore is moving. Not shutting down, but moving and downsizing. It's a response to the realities of the economy and the digital age. Tuesday, Tony and Catherine Weller and others join Doug to talk about the future of independent bookstores, about the changing nature of Main Street and about the lost art of browsing.
