Gaylord’s Saturn Booksellers Announces Closure

By Jillian Manning | March 19, 2022

Saturn Booksellers of Gaylord announced Wednesday (March 16) that the bookshop will close its doors in April. Owner Jill Miner had hoped to find a buyer for the store but instead had to make the difficult decision to end the store’s 29-year run before the lease renewal at the end of next month. In a Facebook announcement to patrons, she noted that health concerns were impacting her work, and though closing will be a “bittersweet process,” she has “met the most incredible, intelligent and interesting people, made wonderful friends, worked with the best staff anyone could hope to employ and have more great memories than I can count.” As the store winds down over the next few weeks, books for babies, children, and young adults (as well as all non-book items) are 25 percent off, and an array of décor—from shelving to tables to fixtures—will be for sale. Orders can be placed and more information can be found by calling ​​(989) 732-8899, visiting, or stopping in the store at 127 W. Main St., Gaylord.
