Mike's Book Store is a college textbook store at the corner of Washtenaw Avenue and Summit Street, right next to the famed Ypsilanti Water Tower. Founded by Mike Root in 2000, it was the only independently owned college textbook store in Washtenaw County until its acquisition by Nebraska Book Company in 2004.
Mike's is currently split between two separate buildings with two addresses which are connected by gated courtyard. The building into which it initially opened used to house ABC Cleaners, and before that, a gas station. The second building was a later expansion, and was formerly a hair salon.
