Yesterday, Barnes & Noble opened its second new concept store, in Edina, Minn., in the Edina Galleria Shopping Center, according to Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. Like the new concept store that opened last week in Eastchester, N.Y., this location features a full-service restaurant, called Barnes & Noble Kitchen, that offers beer and wine.
The Edina store has 21,500 square feet of space; the restaurant has 2,600 and seats 100. Other B&N new concept stores will open soon in Folsom, Calif.; Loudoun County, Va.; and Plano, Tex.
