SF’s Adobe Bookshop Lives!


Good news: Adobe Bookshop, which has spent twenty-three years in the Mission, will not be closing despite rising rent.

Andrew McKinley, the proprietor of Adobe, explains his plan to transform the shop.

“I choose to be an optimist and believe that the store can be saved, providing enough people band together to contribute labor, sufficient funds, and creative energy to transform Adobe Bookshop into a viable cooperative business entity. The cooperative strategy must be realized in a short timeframe to enable a successful transition phase.”
