James and Mary Laurie Booksellers

Neighboring businesses move together, adapt together


Last summer Scott Johnson and Jim Laurie were booted by their landlord from their shops on Nicollet Mall to make room for a new development.

Their businesses, located next door to each other on the 900 block of Nicollet, were geared toward attracting walk-ins from the thousands of people who stroll down the mall each day. Johnson sold exotic foreign antiques, perfumes and lotions at his shop, Jeromeo, and Laurie peddled hard-to-find books, records and paintings from his massive collection at James and Mary Laurie Booksellers.
