Imagine a trip to SLC and NOT to Sam Weller's

Sam Weller's is a bookstore in downtown Salt Lake City that is frequented by many genealogists visiting that city to locate good, used books. This bookstore began operating in 1929. Quite a few historical books on my shelves came from Weller's. At least for now, we won't be able to make a trek to this bookstore on Monday evenings when the library is closed. The bookstore will be closed on Monday evenings and on every other day, too.

Yes, you read that correctly. They say they plan to reopen in a yet undetermined new location. It has not been a profitable business in recent years. Read the full story in today's Salt Lake Tribune.
