    Bookstores For Sale

    A message from Vanessa and David Gronbach, the owners of Bank Street Book Nook:

    Bank Street Book Nook in New Milford, Connecticut, will be closing its doors on February 11, 2018. My husband and I bought the bookstore in February 2014 after reading an article in the local paper that the store would be closing if a buyer was not found. At that time in my life I had just dissolved my law practice in New York and was transitioning my practice to Connecticut, so I guess you can say it was the perfect time to “save” the bookstore.

    We will keep the store open until February 11th to allow customers to place their final orders, use gift certificates, and hopefully, find someone else who is willing to buy the store and keep this important service available in New Milford. We are hopeful that, like us four years ago, someone will step forward and experience the amazing journey of being a bookstore owner. However, if we do not find a buyer by then, we will sell our inventory, furniture, and supplies to anyone interested.

    To contact us about interest in the store, please email

    Thank you,

    Vanessa and David
