The importance of being open. (Books).
A visit to the bookshop 31 years ago inspired Maccubbin to open his first--and flagship--store in Washington, D.C., in 1974. So, he said, he just couldn't let Oscar Wilde close. "It isn't just a business, it's a mission," Maccubbin said. "It's a place that feels like home." He believes the New York shop can be a financial success despite a shift in the gay population in the city and the proliferation of chain bookstores. "We're going to operate that store in a manner that will make New York proud," Maccubbin said.
