Rivendell Bookstore under new ownership
Friday, January 13, 2023
Abilene’s Rivendell Bookstore has changed hands. Co-founder and now-former owner Marilyn Thurlow transferred ownership of the shop to longtime manager Lisa Smegal as of Jan. 1.
The ownership transfer has been in the works since July 2022, but has been the plan for both Thurlow and Smegal for much longer.
