Jose - Jose is our Macy's Chicago store Manager.
Georgette - Co-Manager of our newest bookstore in Burr Ridge, Georgette has been selling (and reading) books for most of her professional career. A true expert.
Liz - Our Glenview operation's (known as The BookMarket at Hangar One) store manager and avid book-person, Liz has eclectic tastes. A little bit of everything is how we would describe Liz's interests.
Rick - Rick is the new manager of our Willis Tower bookstore. He was the longtime assistant manager at our Glenview BookMarket location and ha since been promoted to be slinging books at our store in Chicago's legendary skyscraper.
Matt - a true connoisseur of popular literature, both fiction and non. Matt runs Barbara's Bestsellers at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and handles our relationship with the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.
Michael - one of our most senior staff members, Michael operates our Boston bookstore in the South Station train terminal. Michaels interests go well beyond the ordinary and he is quick to recommend his favorites.
Shannon - when Shannon is not keeping our O'Hare Airport operation running smoothly, she satisfies her voracious appetite for the printed page by devouring books at record speed. Shannon stays on top of the latest trends and can recommend a book for nearly every type of reader, from casual to can't-do-without.
