Flooding from Irene shuts down Bartleby's
It is with a heavy heart that I write this post about the flooding in Wilmington. Bartleby's is currently closed (as is the whole of downtown Wilmington) due to devastating flooding. We have lost the majority of our inventory as well as all of our shelving and we'll require extensive renovations, but the building is sound and we are one of the more fortunate sites in the village. Some buildings washed away down river and others have been condemned. The incredible strength and support that we have experienced over the last few days has been the lifeline we've needed. Friends and neighbors have come together to help our community. The downtown businesses are getting cleaned up more quickly with so much volunteer help.
Bartleby's will reopen and we will do whatever we can to help other businesses and individuals affected. We are blessed to live and work in this community. Wilmington will be put back together!
We will post updates as we have them. Thank you for your support.
