What happens when you decide you can't afford the rent on the warehouse you use for your used books operation?

The Barn is a giant warehouse and is closing down. Having moved some of its more valuable stock to its North Somerset depot, the monster book seller is now literally giving away all its remaining books - as long as you're prepared to rummage.
'I've seen people backing cars and vans into the warehouse so they can stock up.
'One couple even came in a campervan and I think they slept overnight and then crammed as many books as they could into their van and drove off.'
The contents of the aircraft hangar-sized warehouse are a librarian's worst nightmare, with the books piled willy-nilly and not separated according to subject or genre.
