Hyde Park Books, a staple in the North End of Boise for 30 years, is closing its doors.
Marti Martino bought the used bookstore in 2013. She says the store has had just three owners in its long history.
She says she’s heartbroken for her family and for the community. “It’s kind of still raw for me. It’s been something we’ve been thinking about for quite some time,” Martino says. “We haven’t made this decision lightly by any manner. I understand it’s been an icon in the community for quite some time. But unfortunately it’s not sustainable.”
