Main Street shop The Last Bookstore will be moving out of the Old Bank District when its lease expires in May, but it won't be going very far. Owner Josh Spencer has signed a lease for the 10,000-square-foot ground floor of the Spring Arts Tower at 5th and Spring, a big jump from the shop's current 970-square-foot spot at 4th and Main.

Spencer hopes to share some of that space with complementary businesses like a coffee shop, vinyl record store or gallery.

The shop's current location in the San Fernando building will become part of chef Josef Centeno's B├Ąco.

Last Bookstore will remain open at 400 S. Main until mid to late May, and then hopes to reopen at 453 S. Spring on June 1.
