B&N to open five new design concept stores

Mar 05 2018

Later this year, Barnes & Noble will open five stores featuring a new, smaller-format design in which "front and center will be our new books," according to CEO Demos Parneros. The stores, which will ideally be 14,000 square feet--much smaller than the company's traditional 25,000-square-foot superstores--will have a "fresher, cleaner, newer, very up-to-date" feel, Parneros added.

B&N will not open any more of the new concept stores first introduced in 2016 that featured full kitchens. Parneros called the five "kitchen concept" stores "a great learning experience" that helped in the design of the newer prototype.
