The new owners of Aspen’s Explore Booksellers say they bought the property and business because they want to promote new ideas. They also have a history of visiting Aspen and the book store. The $5 million sale closed earlier this month.

The new buyer is a group of investors connected to the Public Interest Network. The Network trains activists and supports non profits. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen spoke with Wendy Wendlandt, a spokesperson for the group of buyers.
