A popular store now closes in Illinois after 25 years according to the company’s latest social media post.

Barnes & Nobles has announced its latest book store closure in Illinois after a solid 25 years.

“We’ve found a new home! We must leave this store, and the new bookstore will be located a short distance away at the Prairie Market Shopping Center (2590 US Highway 34, Oswego, IL 60543), next to Best Buy and Near Ulta Beauty and Kohl’s,” the company said in a statement.

“The new location offer us a huge opportunity to feature our highly lauded new store design.

Our shelves will be stocked with all the bestsellers and hidden gems you know and love – our world-class book selection, the best toys and games, expansive vinyl collection, and more.

We can’t wait for you to see our unique new design features and updates B& N Café.

It has truly been our honor and privilege to be your book seller in Naperville for the last 25 years.

While we’re saddened to vacate our current home, we are so excited to stay nearby and in a beautiful new bookstore.”

Many booklovers who have been visiting the area for years now have expressed their disappointment on social media.

“I never thought I’d see the day B&N left that amazing location in downtown Naperville. It’s so sad.”

“This is a huge loss for Naperville. Downtown will never be the same.”

“Downtown Napes won’t be the same without y’all.”

Some complained that the ‘short distance’ to the new location wasn’t so short.

“A short distance, lol. It’s a 25-minute drive from the old location.”

“That’s not a short distance at all!”
