Tate Street landmark Addam’s Bookstore will close

Addam’s Bookstore, a longtime fixture on Tate Street, is closing its doors. The final day is March 4.

Chris Landis, transition manager for the store, said Addam’s Bookstore had been at the location at least 25 years.

Students have always had the UNCG Bookstore in Elliott University Center. But students over the years have known Addam’s as a great additional source for used textbooks, art supplies, office supplies and Spartan wear. The Carolinian first reported the closing.

The building was originally a movie theatre. Its facade stills bears the marquee.
