The Barnes & Noble bookstore closing in Loehmann’s Plaza, brings back memories of its beginnings as a small store that operated on Broadway and 18th street in New York City and was known for selling text books to students.
Its expansion during the 80’s and 90’s into a mega chain drove many of the book stores, like the one they were when they first started, out of business. Now the shoe appears to be on the other foot as e-books force them and other large book retailers to shutter their stores. I’m sad that any bookstore closes, big or small.
