Partners West Closing April 1

March 30, 2016

Over the last couple of days the sad news has broken that Partners West in Renton is shutting down after 32 years. Here is the PW story.  Partners supplied our Best Bets  (Explore before that) and Book Discussion Kit orders and were shopping grounds for many teen paperbacks, teen classics, and board books as well. We will all miss Partner’s dedicated, quality customer service, which they seem to be keeping up to the very end.  For example, a personal representative called Acquisitions early yesterday to assure us that ordered materials would still be arriving in early April and to personally inform us of their closure.  According to the story, many West Coast bookstores will join us in missing them, too.

    Partners was always the first backup for the bookstores where I worked, and they delivered on weekends during the Christmas season — a lifesaver! I even toured the facility to see their distribution assembly line. They will be missed.
