Harvard Book Store SOLD!

10/03/2008 12:01:00 AM
Remember back in May when I blogged about how the Harvard Book Store was for sale (here)? Well, looks like it's been sold.

Harvard Book Store, which had been for sale since last spring, was sold yesterday to a married couple from Wellesley who say they intend to change very little about the place.

Frank Kramer, whose family owned the store for 76 years, sold the Harvard Square landmark to Jeff Mayersohn and Linda Seamonson. The price was not disclosed. Kramer, 66, put the store up for sale last May, saying that after 46 years in the business he wanted to move on to other things and put more effort into Cambridge Local First, an initiative he founded to encourage support for local stores.

Congratulations to the new owners. Glad to know that you aren't planning on changing too much about the place - it's a great book store.

  1. Kathleen Said,

    I love this bookstore, so it's a relief to know it won't change (unlike most of Harvard Square has - and not for the better).
