Barnes & Noble Closes Rowland Heights Location

Sigh, for a while Rowland Heights had two US bookstores. A Borders, and a Barnes & Noble. Now there are none.

First, the bathrooms were closed.
Then they took away the seats.
And then, they closed the store.

2 1/2 stars in Yelp.

Barns and Noble even closed the location in Pasadena!

I wonder if Barnes and Noble really wants to be in business?

There is a niche for bookstores, when properly managed usually.

I do know about Borderlands closing in San Franscisco, and how it was saved potentially through sponsorship's.

Back in the early 1990s, there was another bookstore chain on Colima Road in City of Industry/Rowland Heights called Crown Books. That closed a long time ago.

I remember the crown bookstore. It's was near where In N Out is now.

I am amazed, for an area that used to have 3 English bookstores within 5 miles, now there are none. Borders also had a store in Brea that had a cafe. There was also a bookstore in La Puente that I heard about from a family member who was a school librarian, but I never stopped by there.
