Dear Linden Tree Books loyal customers and community:
Linden Tree Books is for sale!
We are excited to offer our next owner the opportunity to continue the rich tradition of children’s bookselling while bringing this store, a fixture in the community for 40+ years, to the next generation of families.
When we purchased the store from Linda and Dennis eight years ago, our goal was to transition Linden Tree into a sustainable business that would continue to thrive even in the ups and downs of Silicon Valley. We have successfully refreshed the brand, moved the location to the heart of town, and grown the business to be a nationally recognized name. We have also modernized our retail and inventory management systems and launched online sales. Our checklist is complete!
No worries, we are NOT going out of business, but looking for the perfect buyer/s with the vision and energy to bring Linden Tree Books to even greater levels of success. We’re confident that the next great “chapter” is just around the corner – what ideas do you have for what else Linden Tree can be?
Let us know if you want to be part of the journey along with our experienced staff, and take advantage of our mutually supportive partnerships with local schools and our solid relationships with vendors, publishers, and authors.
Please send serious inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can work on the next steps together.
We will continue our regular store hours, activities, programs, rewards program, and community event support, with an eye on an exciting and profitable holiday season coming your way!
Dianne Edmonds and Jill Curcio, Co-Owners
