MAPLEWOOD, MN-Barnes & Noble recently signed a lease to open a new 40,000-sf bookstore in Maplewood Mall. The store, expected to open in November 2004, is in the regional mall located off Interstate 694 on White Bear Avenue.

The mall is owned by Simon Property Group of Indianapolis. When the new Barnes & Noble opens, the existing B. Dalton store in the Maplewood Mall will close.

The store will stock close to 200,000 books, music, DVDs and magazine titles and include a cafe serving Starbucks coffee. The new store will feature large-scale children’s departments with more than 15,000 titles, a music-listening system featuring RedDotNet technology, which allows customers to listen to any CD in the store, and a newsstand with more than 2,000 specialty magazines and newspapers.

Barnes & Noble has 653 bookstores in 49 states, 188 B. Dalton Bookseller stores, primarily in regional shopping malls, and a 63% interest in GameStop, a video game and entertainment software specialty retailer with 1,603 stores.
