Murray-based College Book Renter is downsizing as part of its Chapter 11 Bankruptcy reorganization. College Book Renter is one of many companies owned by Murray businessman Chuck Jones and partner David Griffin, an Arkansas-based businessman.

Bankruptcy Trustee Robert Waldschmidt says CBR has set up a temporary smaller location, after abandoning its much larger facility south of town. Waldschmidt says that building was too big and too expensive to operate.
