In all-too-familiar news, another Los Angeles bookstore is shutting down: Giant Robot in Silver Lake will close its doors on March 28. Until then, its stock -- which includes toys, T-shirts and ephemera as well as books and periodicals -- is on sale, 20% off. Giant Robot has three other, larger stores -- in San Francisco, New York and West L.A. -- which will stay open. So will its West L.A. restaurant, gr/eats, and Giant Robot the magazine, now 15 years old. Publisher and co-founder Eric Nakamura explains on his blog that the closure was partly the result of the economic downturn but also the end of a sublease.
