A Retailer in Virginia Now Makes An Unexpected Closure

A retailer in Virginia now makes an unexpected closure after 23 years in business, leaving customers in grieving the news.

Barnes & Noble has announced the closure of yet another location.

The Glen Allen, Virginia location – about 13 miles north of Richmond – will shutter in a matter of weeks.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the closure of this bookstore, as the landlord has chosen to redevelop,” the store shared in a Facebook post.

The store’s last day will be on June 23.

“It has been our honor and privilege to be your bookseller here in Glen Allen for the last 23 years,” the statement read.

However, it isn’t the final chapter for the bookstore in the area, as a new location is being planned.

“We thank our wonderful Glen Allen booksellers for their many years of hard work and dedication, and they, as we, hope to welcome you back to our new bookstore in the near future,” the statement continued.

Until that store opens, employees will have the opportunity to work in one of the other nearby locations.

There are three remaining Barnes & Noble storefronts in Richmond, all within a 30-minute drive of the Glen Allen shop.

Patrons of the soon-to-be-shuttered store were upset by the announcement.

“Sorry to hear about this closing. I’ve bought so many wonderful books at this location,” one customer commented.

“This is the worst news I’ve had all year,” another said.

The Glen Allen location is not the only Barnes & Noble store to close this year.

New York City’s Tribeca location shuttered on January 14 after 16 years.

Similarly to the Glen Allen location, the Tribeca store closed because of the landlord’s plan to redevelop the premises.

In a note to customers, the retailer wrote it was an “honor and privilege” to operate the Tribeca location.

Another Barnes & Noble store in Naperville, Illinois – a suburb of Chicago – also closed in January.

That store was open for 25 years.

Another massive retailer is now closing due to crime despite its location being a community staple for several years.

Rampant theft has led Walgreens to permanently close one of its major locations at the White Oak Shopping Center in Maryland, reports The-Sun.

Staff and shoppers told ABC affiliate WJLA-TV that the store was closed due to high rates of theft and crime.

Mobile security cameras were recently added by police in the parking lot around stores in the shopping center.

A source also told WJLA-TV that the shopping center’s management company had to fire their security company and hire a new one.

Just last year, there was an armed robbery inside Walgreens, resulting in a man and a woman taking an unknown amount of money and products.

Robberies have become a major problem in the area as stores get ransacked by violent thieves.

A resident told the outlet she was too scared to leave her car in the shopping center’s parking lot.

She says she saw another woman get assaulted and robbed.

“You can simply be walking and they take your purse and start running and they leave you with nothing,” said Sarah Rodriguez.

“That’s why when I’m here before I get out of my car I always look around first.”

Walgreens corporate execs announced earlier this year that about 150 stores will be closed throughout the US.

This would reduce the company’s corporate staff by about 10%, resulting in over 500 positions being eliminated.

News of a replacement for the store in the White Oak Shopping Center hasn’t been announced.

However, the center has been struggling to replace the Sears location that has sat vacant for over three years.

“Yeah, it’s not good, because everyone is complaining,” said resident Kokou Eafbo.

“This is the only pharmacy we have in this area and suddenly they close, we don’t understand.”

The shopping center had once been a thriving area full of shops in Montgomery County, reports The US Sun.
