Escape Again Bookstore

Paperbacks abound at this recently-opened bookstore.  It's the brainchild of Eddie Cardenas, a former resident of Laredo who left our fine city to attend culinary school in another state.

He moved back hoping to open a pastry shop, but as things would have it, he decided to go into the used book business.

Currently he and his sister, Marisol Cantu, tend the store.  It's located at 608 W. Calton Rd. (betweeen Emperor Garden and Luby's).  Mr. Cardenas is shopping publishers to offer the public new releases.

Expansion will come down the road.  For now let's support this venture, one that's definitely needed here in Laredo.  For more details, check out their site.
