| Downtown Disney store prepares for closure |
Orange County Register
Compass Book Store and Cafe is winding down its final days of operation at Downtown Disney as the company shifts the mix of venues in the entertainment-shopping district. Compass is holding a clearance sale, reducing prices by 30 to 50 percent on books and gifts, until its last day March 31. A nearby kiosk, which sells magazines and sundries, also will close.
Michael Tucker, president of Books Inc. that runs Compass, said Disney and the company made a mutual decision to close the Compass location, which has run in Downtown Disney since it opened in 2001. Tucker said Disney has a “new vision” for businesses in Downtown Disney.
This summer, Earl of Sandwich will open in the Compass location.
