Louisville’s Carmichael’s Bookstore featured in The New York Times

by
Carmichael's Bookstore

Online shopping has presented challenges to brick-and-mortar stores of all types – and independent bookstores especially face steep competition. But one Louisville bookseller has successfully entered its next generation.

Carmichael’s Bookstore is the city’s oldest independent bookseller and was recently featured by The New York Times for its passing of ownership.

Carol Besse and Michael Boggs founded the store in 1978 and officially passed ownership to their daughter Miranda Blankenship and niece Kelly Estep. Estep said they don’t plan to make changes to the store but hope to improve what has already proved to be successful for 41 years.
