Sasuga Japanese Bookstore announced on July 6 that it was closing its doors "for good." The independent company cited "the current economic climate and the many changes in the international bookselling market" as reasons that it cannot continue operating. The company carried a selection of Japanese-language manga and magazines in both its online store and its physical store. The physical store, which was located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, had already closed in 2004. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts lists the voluntary dissolution of Sasuga Japanese Bookstore, Inc. on July 12.
