Sarah Abe, the store's general manager, explained, "It looks like the repairs would be quite slow, so we are likely moving to a different address altogether. Our online business is still going strong, and we're hoping to move quickly."
Daybreak has not announced any plans for a fundraising campaign to aid their transition. If anyone would like to help, please contact the store directly.
One of the upstairs apartments in the building that houses Daybreak Press Global Bookshop in St. Paul, MN, experienced a small electrical fire recently. Nothing in the bookstore was damaged, thankfully, but the city has determined that the entire building must be rewired as a safety precaution. As such, Daybreak has temporarily moved to an alternate office location and continues selling books online.
