We're stifling sobs as we hear one of our favourite bookshops, Crockatt & Powell on Lower Marsh, is closing down tomorrow. Perhaps the writing had been on the wall since they had to pull out of Fulham Road (dark mutterings about being forced out by Daunt were brushed aside by Matthew Crockatt a few months ago; the guys knew Daunt were pondering the old Pan site when they opened) and the sodding, sodding credit crunch. By our reckoning this leaves the West End-ish area without a decent generalist independent bookshop. It's a dark day indeed.
