Just closed its doors.

And it seems its people are mad about it. The city has several libraries with decent traffic and the store was profitable.

I wonder what the owners of Barnes and Nobles were thinking. They won't be able to begin construction on the new one for 18 months.

This is the first article I've seen on it, lets watch and see what happens.

Edit: found another article on CNN.

In P&CE, though.

Maybe someone should open an independent bookstore.

Indeed it looks like a great opportunity.

Hmm. I searched the site pretty thoroughly. At least I thought I did.

Didn't find it though. I've not been on a lot of late so I'll take your word that its there. :D
