FOREST CITY | Clark Street was filled with activity and independent vendors on Friday, Sept. 15, for the last installment of Fridays in Forest in downtown Forest City.

Among those vendors was Quincy Benson and her family, selling books from the Usborne Books and More Company. Benson just started selling Usborne Books this summer, but has been using them for decades, she said.

“My kids are homeschooled and the Usborne Company has a lot of educational books which can be used as curriculum,” Benson said. “They are good reliable quality books. They also have a money-back guarantee, for 30 days. They will also replace the books for half price, if damaged.”

Benson said Fridays in the Forest provided her the opportunity to sell her books with her new independent business.

The Fridays in Forest event is sponsored by the Forest City Chamber of Commerce. The free event is designed to not only highlight Forest City businesses, but the beautiful downtown area of Forest City, as well.
