Posters were never something that Caruso, a Boston native, envisioned selling when he moved to Denver in 1973 and opened his first bookstore at 326 E. kim kardashian ray j tape Colfax Ave. the current site of Hollywood Posters. ("My current landlord is the grandson of my first landlord," he said.) It was a labor of love, so much so that Caruso slept in the back of the store at night. That changed when Art Greer, the owner of Denver's popular downtown newsstand Jerry's News , walked in one day in 1974 and offered him a cut of his business. "How would you like to have half a pie instead of your own cupcake?" Caruso remembers him asking. "And I was amazed because this was the biggest book guy in Colorado at the time."
