Cooper Union Re-Considering Lowering Rent for St. Mark's Bookshop
St. Mark's Bookshop vs. Cooper Union: the saga continues. A few days ago we reported that Cooper Union, St. Mark's Bookshop's landlord, had refused to lower the store's rent from $20,000 to $15,000 a month.
Today it turns out there's still hope! Owner Bob Contant told the Local EV that "They said the decision is under reconsideration."
Apparently Cooper Union never firmly decided that they weren't going to lower the store's rent, according to CU reps that the Local talked to. Hooray!
That said, the final decision will come by the end of the month i.e. in the next few days. Fingers crossed. Go buy some books.
