Bookworms, crack this open: Barnes & Noble opened a new store prototype at Fairfax’s Mosaic District on April 24.
The location is the brand’s smallest store in the country (Barnes & Noble has been testing smaller formats over the past few years), sizing in at only 8,300 square feet.
The store offers an assortment of books (24,000 titles are currently available), a curated selection of educational toys and games, family games, puzzles and gift items.
The design is also a part of Barnes & Noble’s changing aesthetic, featuring oak bookshelves, a mix of wood grain tiles and carpet and lower bookshelves for panoramic views of the stores. Also, the Children’s Section includes a dedicated LEGO activity table.
Like most Barnes & Noble locations, the store in Mosaic District includes a Starbucks, with beverages, baked goods and grab-and-go snacks.
The location will also host events for the community, including book fairs for local schools, book signings with authors and storytelling sessions for kids. For more information, visit barnesandnoble.com. // Barnes & Noble: 2921 District Ave., Suite 180, Fairfax
