Barnes & Noble bookstore’s current location at Coconut Point shopping center in Estero is closing March 5 after 17 years.
The bookstore chain intends to reopen in a smaller space at Coconut Point but has yet to announce a timetable or exact location. In the interim, the store is hoping shoppers will travel north or south to Barnes & Noble locations at Marketplace SC, 13751 Tamiami Trail in south Fort Myers, or in Waterside Shops, 5377 Tamiami Trail, in Naples.
“Our lease is expiring,” said Janine Flanigan, director of store planning and design for Barnes & Noble. “That landlord is redoing parts of the center. We’re in the process of finding the exact space right now.”
