AN­OTHER vic­tim of the com­bi­na­tion of Lancini’s de­vel­op­ment and the coun­cil’s mall ren­o­va­tions, Jim’s Book Ex­change will close down on April 30. Jan Stephens, who has op­er­ated the busi­ness for 28 of its 31 years in the mall, is sad to be go­ing, but says that she just can’t con­tinue when there’s no like­li­hood of things im­prov­ing any time soon. But ev­ery cloud has a sil­ver lin­ing and she’s sell­ing off all her books cheaply in her Met­way Ar­cade shop.
