Brattleboro’s Mystery on Main Street bookstore is shutting down

Brattleboro’s bookstore Mystery on Main Street says that it will shut down for good on March 23rd.

In a post to Facebook, the store says that it’s selling off its inventory — signs in the windows say that it’s a “retirement sale.”

The bookstore focuses extensively on stocking mystery novels, and was named by Yankee Magazine as one of the best independent bookstores to visit in New England. I’ve shopped at the store a couple of times over the years, and it’s always been a fantastic place to browse and to pick up a good mystery novel.
