From television station WMAZ, comes word that a bus was purposely blown up in front of the bookstore as part of the filming of "The Fifth Wave, a movie based on a recent Rick Yancey book. The book is the fifth in Yancey's series about an alien invasion that is quickly ridding Earth of its human population.
From the news broadcast:
"The exploded a bus right in front of our store," she said.She said that fire crews immediately went into the store to make sure a fire hadn't started inside the store. Luckily, there was no fire, but Wakefield pointed out that their internet and phone lines had been destroyed. The store's modem for its Internet and telephone equipment had been completely melted.It wasn't the equipment that had her worried though. "Our first concern was the cats," she said, "We have bookstore cats that were in at the time, but we found them safe."
As part of their settlement, the bookstore owners should ask for a bunch of copies of "The Fifth Wave" that they could sell at 100% profit in the store. After all, this is the book that inadvertently put them out of business for a while. (Here's hoping that the bookstore repairs go so well that they result in improvements to the old store.)
