No! Samuel French To Close Studio City, CA Location

Well, here’s some bad news to anyone (including me) who frequents the Studio City location of Samuel French.

The company announced on it’s Facebook page that on February 20th, they will close that location and merge it with the Hollywood store.

What’s strange was they way they put it:



Samuel French will be COMBINING it’s two stores, making our HOLLYWOOD LOCATION your MAIN theatre and film RESOURCE.

On FEBRUARY 20, 2012, our STUDIO CITY Bookshop will JOIN FORCES with our HOLLYWOOD STORE to create an ALL-IN-ONE Sunset Boulevard location where you can CONTINUE to find LA’s LARGEST SELECTION OF PLAYS as well as all your theatre, film, and television resource needs.

Weird, right? It sounds like they’re trying to make it seem like closing a store a good thing.

I love the Studio City store… mostly because it’s a pain for me to get to the Hollywood location.
