Grand Opening for Book World Store in DeKalb

Book World hosted a grand opening Wednesday for its new location in the Junction Shopping Center, 858 W. Lincoln Highway, DeKalb, Ill. The Daily Chronicle reported that the company, which operates 45 stores in Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Iowa and Minnesota, "fielded several requests from people in the area for locating one of its stores in DeKalb and visited the area several times to see whether the Junction location would work."

For more than 20 years, the Junction Shopping Center was home to the Junction Book Store, which opened in 1969 and closed in 2002, "not long after Borders Books & Music opened in November 2001 and Barnes & Noble announced plans of its own for a bookstore across the street," the Daily Chronicle wrote. B&N closed its store at the end of 2014.
