A neighborhood bookstore in Honolulu’s neighborhood of Mō‘ili‘ili will be closing down soon. It’s been part of the university community for nearly 40 years. The store's manager says it's because of financial pressures--but the enterprise isn't disappearing entirely. Jackie Young has more on the changing times for a familiar store.
Revolution Books opened in 1976, near Tamashiro Market in Kalihi. Within 2 years, it moved to the university area and has been there ever since—specializing in a wide range of topics, including politics, feminism, religion and the environment.
