The Nebraska Book Co. has bought the Jayhawk Bookstore, 1420 Crescent Road, the store’s current owner said.
“After 33 years of building an icon here, I decided to step out of actually running the store,” said store owner Bill Muggy.
The new owners, a national wholesale and retail bookstore conglomerate, will take over July 15, Muggy said.
The company also owns the University Book Shop, 1116 W. 23rd St.
The Jayhawk Bookstore won’t be moving, Muggy said, and the personnel are expected to remain largely the same. He declined to disclose the financial details of the sale.
