Farewell Madras Cafe Books

Hello MCB people past & present

We have been delivered a mortal blow by 'our' landlord, and will be
dismantling and leaving this location by December.
After nearly 10 years, we have been discarded, without consultation, in
favour of the bigger money payable by a business wanting to get to those '25
thousand students'.

At this stage we have no plans to open elsewhere, but that may be revisited
once we have had some time to reassess our heads and our situation.
We wish to express our deepest thanks to those of you who have supported us
throughout, and feel a great sadness in not being able to continue our
relationship beyond mid-November.

We will be attempting sell off as much of our book stock as possible, and to
that end are offering a 25% discount as of now. We also have a fine range of
CDs which are selling for 50% off marked price.

Depending on results that discount will be increased in the next week or so.
We are also looking to sell off fixtures and fittings - tables, chairs etc
etc - and are proposing to do this by deadline tender. If you are interested
in anything please drop your offer into us ASAP.
We will continue to trade for the next 2-4 weeks.

Please pass this information on to any who may be interested..
Best wishes. Do come and say goodbye!
