Cody’s to move back to downtown Berkeley
The one Cody’s Bookstore remaining from their overly — some say foolishly — otimistic period of expansion, the one on Berkeley’s upscale 4th St. shopping street, will close by the end of March. The company will reopen in downtown Berkeley, on Shattuck near the BART station. This means moving from a very large store in an upscale yuppie shopping area to a smaller store in an area with much more foot traffic, of both UC Berkeley students (who never go to 4th St.) and residents.
