Anderson’s Bookshops has launched a GoFundMe campaign to keep the Naperville-based bookseller in business because the coronavirus pandemic has eliminated the in-store purchases on which they rely.

After surviving nearly 60 years, fending off economic recessions, big book store competition and changes in people’s reading habits, the current situation is a “tremendous threat” like no other, the store’s GoFundMe page says.

“It’s hit us all hard and stifled our world," the donation page said. "We may not all be infected, but we are all affected. We cannot thank you enough for your loyalty and helping us to thrive. Our business has relied on cash flow and foot traffic over generations as your home for books here in Illinois. Without those channels, our future is uncertain.”

As of Tuesday afternoon, Anderson’s had raised more than $42,000 since launching the campaign five days ago. The business hopes to raise $100,000.
