Tony and Nikki Forthergill who have run the Ken Spelman bookshop in Micklegate for 43 years, will be closing the shop, but not their business.  Tony said the pattern of people buying cheap second-hand books has changed which is only a small part of the business. 

The business has been done from home increasingly over the last two years and the buying and selling of rare second-hand books is still thriving and will continue online with many prestigious clients around the world.
