MARLBOROUGH – Seeing a lack of independent bookstores in MetroWest, Framingham residents Michael Joachim and Tracey McCrea opened Stax Discount Books in Marlborough in late 2016.
This week, the duo announced the book store on Route 20 in the RK Centre Plaza would close at the end of the month.
“It is with heavy hearts that we must announce that Stax Discount Books is closing at the end of January. Mike and I are grateful that we were able to do this grand experiment of owning a bookstore. To say that we have had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful readers and families is a grand understatement. The very best thing about the past year or so has been the interactions we have had with the community,” wrote the two on the store’s Facebook page.
Starting this week, everything in the store is 50 percent off.
