Barnes & Noble will open its new Coral Springs location at The Walk on Oct. 6, the company announced Monday.

Amelia Mulinder, Head of Public Relations at Barnes & Noble, said the bookseller’s return to Coral Springs will feature grand opening events. 

In July, Mulinder said the company was planning for a late September 2021 opening. 

The bookseller’s beloved, 20-year-old Coral Springs location closed in February 2020.

After the closure, Amera Properties, the commercial real estate management company for The Walk, said they intended to work with Barnes & Noble to reopen a smaller store at the same location, matching the international chain’s new business model and format.

The expectation — pre-COVID-19 — was that the new location would be ready in just six months. A lengthier delay has ensued. 

The former 27,000 square-foot location at 2790 N University Dr was split into two, with Trader Joe’s leasing the north side at 2796 N. University Dr and Barnes & Noble now relocated next door.

Although Barnes & Noble will be half the size of its old location, the store is expected to pack plenty of literary goodies into smaller quarters.

The location will focus more on books and sell an assortment of non-book items, like greeting cards.

The new store will be about 14,000 square feet, making it roughly 12,000 sq. ft. smaller than the chain’s typical locations.

It will not include a cafe, Mulinder said.
