From Elliott Bay Book Company Instagram this week:
We have a major life update for you all: we now have new owners!
The transfer will happen over the course of this month and the new owners are very familiar faces, being our general manager [Tracy Taylor] and longtime shoppers and Queer/Bar owners [husband-and-husband team Joey Burgess and Murf Hall]. We are sorry to see our former owner [Peter Aaron] go, but we believe that even when you leave Elliott Bay, Elliott Bay never leaves you, and we are excited to see what our new owners will bring to the table.
Congratulations and thank you to the new ownership team for keeping a beloved institution moving forward!
