Cody's Books closes Telegraph store

Cody's has closed its main branch at Telegraph Ave -- their Fourth Street and Stockton Street stores are still open. Cody's is where I turned to for author's events when Keplers closed (temporarily, as it turned out). The cause of the closure seems to be multiple factors, from declining foot traffic and crime on Telegraph Ave that has lead to a 10%+ vacancy rate, to a shifting student audience that now uses online stores for books more and more. I have used the Fourth Street store much more than the Telegraph store, but I wonder if Cody's will still have the same draw for author's events.
