AE Capital City Weekly E-readers, online shopping and iPhones may be giving brick-and-mortar bookstores a hard time, but Petersburg's Sing Lee Alley Books and Gifts has taken up the challenge to stay relevant both to locals and to tourists. The store was started by Tina Green and Phoebe Smith in 1981. Current owner Nancy Zaic did massage in a room at the back of the store and started managing it when Green was away. She arrived in Petersburg from Oregon in 1977 when she got a job in a restaurant through the newspaper.

Making Local Work: Sing Lee Alley Books and Gifts

Sing Lee Alley Books and Gifts, in Petersburg, is owned by Nancy Zaic. The store's location in an old house gives it more character, and makes those from areas in which independent bookstores are on the decline appreciate it even more, Zaic said.
