CORONADO, Calif. (KGTV) -- A Coronado bookstore that’s been a fixture of the landscape for nearly three decades will be able to move a few doors down thanks to a decision by the City Council.

In 2018, a developer bought up nearly a whole block of Orange Avenue and Bay Books was only paying a fraction of market rent.

Owner Angelica Muller told 10News in February that the store was considering a move down the block, but would have to sell coffee and pastries to stay in business.

Tuesday night, Coronado’s Mayor Richard Bailey announced that the city council took action that allows the store to offer coffee service.

“We believe this policy will be helpful to our downtown business community and is a win for Coronado,” Bailey said.
