Don Blyly, owner of Uncle Hugo’s and Uncle Edgar’s in Minneapolis, was recently interviewed by local NBC affiliate KARE for a report on independent bookstores:
…Uncle Hugo’s and Uncle Edgar’s in Minneapolis….specialize in Mystery and Science Fiction novels.
“We’re hanging in there, it’s tough, but hanging in there,” Don Blyly said, owner.
They’ve been around for about 35 years and the selection is mindblowing
“Somewhere around 100,000 volumes,” Blyly said. “A lot of people use this as a destination, or an excuse to come into town.”
Blyly said some people are actually coming back to independent bookstores because they’re tired of poor selections at the big chains.
