Title Wave Bookstore’s lease is up in April and the soon-to-be new owners were unsure if they should stay or if they should go. After weeks of mulling it over, current manager and longtime employee Angela Libal decided to keep the used bookstore in the Spenard Northern Light’s Center strip mall where’s been since 2002.
“Title Wave is an iconic store of Spenard and I think it’s great that they are staying there and staying true to that neighborhood,” Matthew Palmer, a Title Wave customer said.
Libal will be remodeling the store’s 33,000 square feet to utilize space.
“We’ll be remodeling and reworking the space to fit us even better,” Libal said in an email.
Customers are looking forward to the new and improved Title Wave.
“I think that Title Wave made a good choice to stay and preserve a spenardian jewel. I think remodeling is always a good idea for a business and it will probably draw in more customers,” Jacob Reausaw, a frequent shopper at Title Wave books, said.
Store credit and gift certificates will expire on March 15 and the buy-back counter will be temporarily closed for the months of March and April while remodeling takes place. The buy-back counter and store credit will return as soon as the remodel is finished.
