BALTIMORE — The iconic Barnes & Noble store located at The Power Plant in Baltimore's Inner Harbor will close on Aug. 29.
In a statement, Barnes & Nobles said in part, "it has been a privilege to run it as one of the most distinctive bookstores of the United States but these very attributes now make it extraordinarily expensive both to run and to maintain."
Barnes & Noble said it will reinvest the money it took to run the Inner Harbor location into improving current locations as well as opening three new locations, including in Rockville.
"We have been honored to serve customers from The Power Plant bookstore since it opened in 1998 and appreciate their loyalty and support," Barnes & Nobles said in a statement.
Customers can find other nearby locations at White Marsh at 8123 Honeygo Blvd. (next to Old Navy) and at Pikesville at 1819 Reisterstown Road (near Trader Joe’s).
