B&N to Close Bethesda, Md., Store

Barnes & Noble will close its three-level, 37,500-square-foot location at the corner of Woodmont and Bethesda avenues in Bethesda, Md., when the lease expires at the end of the year. Bethesda Beat reported that the closure "represents the end of an era for the bookstore, which has anchored a key corner of the mixed-use retail center for two decades and has served as a popular community gathering space."

"We had discussions with the property owner in hopes of agreeing to an extension of the lease, but unfortunately, we were unable to come to an agreement," said David Deason, a Barnes & Noble v-p. "It has been our pleasure to have served this community and we hope to continue to serve our valued customers at the nearby Rockville Pike and Clarendon Market Common stores."
