Harbour Books to Close

Independent bookseller Harbour Books of Dartmouth, Devon will be closing its doors at the end of the month after sixty years. The store was founded in 1951 by Christopher Robin Milne, who was the model for his father’s character Christopher Robin, who ran it until he retired in 1983. The current owners, Rowland and Caroline Abram, have explained their decision to close based on increased rents and more on-line competition.
