The Ukazoo Books store in West Toledo will close Aug. 16, company officials said today.
The store, which sells new and used books, opened on North Westwood Avenue, near the University of Toledo, in January, 2012.
Until the store closes, most new and used books will be sold at a 50 percent discount.
Edward Whitfill, the general manager of Ukazoo's retail operations, said it was too soon to know whether the store's 11 full-time and part-time workers would be offered other jobs with the company.
