Yale's Independent Book Alternative Changes Hands

Book Haven has long provided Yale students with an independent alternative to their school's bookstore. Now its owners are turning over the store... but not to the type of corporate entity one would assume in today's industry climate. No, the Schwabs' have sold their store to Labyrinth Books, an independent alternative for Columbia University books. Labyrinth will expand on their current Book Haven store and remain committed to scholarly texts. Maintaining a Book Haven's lower price commitment will keep the students coming, but if not expect a whole lot more orders from New Haven, CT come late August.
