I think I've pretty much decided that I will close when the lease is up in October.
I've got a total of £20k debt (in loan and credit card) to pay off, as well as bills and invoices until I close.
How do I make sure that all this wonderful stock that no one wants to buy goes before my deadline of 24th October? How do I close? How do I close all my accounts? (and yes, I'm pretty sure that I'll have to pay get out fees for phone line and utilities)
Its not a question of whether anyone could make a success of it though, its about whether someone else thinks they can make a go of it or fancies a try at it. Plenty of folk have a running a bookshop dream and a bit of money to invest. And after all you may be right that if BIWI can't make a go of it nobody can, but there again you may be wrong.
I've seen some great posts from you in AIBU and some book related ones recently. You seem a bit more positive. Sorry haven't replied to you directly on them <I tend to lurk more than post, my wpm speed is very low now>
