B&N Opening New Store in Visalia, Calif.

A new Barnes & Noble store is coming to the Sequoia Mall in Visalia, Calif., the Sun Gazette reported.

While B&N has said only that the company is "close to securing a site" in Visalia, the Gazette expects the new bookstore to reside in a 16,000-square-foot space in the Sequoia Mall that is currently under construction.

Janine Flanigan, B&N's director of store planning and design, said the upcoming Visalia store will follow the same model that the company has used for its 16 most recent stores. It will be the first bookstore in the Sequoia Mall since Borders closed in 2011.
