The Book Vault in Mesa, Ariz., has moved from a 9,000-square-foot space into a 43,000-square-foot store that once held a Sports Authority, owners Kay and Steve Albrecht told Shelf Awareness. The move happened in late March, when the Book Vault left Mesa's Power Square Mall, where it had resided for seven years, to become a fixture in the Superstition Springs Center shopping mall. Since then, the Albrechts have expanded the store's new and used book inventory, increased the size of its music and movie departments, and added new gaming and comic book departments. Space has also been reserved for community events, meetings and tabletop gaming. The Albrechts added that moving into the Superstition Springs Center "helps to fill a void" created when the mall's Borders Books & Music closed in 2011.
The Book Vault is located at 6505 E. Southern Ave., Suite 201, Mesa, Ariz. 85206; 480-699-1136.
