Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek
After several years at Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek, Amazon Books is closing, not only here, but everywhere. They opened an opportune time, a couple of years after Barnes & Noble closed a few blocks away. And now, in an ironic twist, Barnes & Noble is coming to a new spot in downtown Walnut Creek at Plaza Escuela, where Forever 21 used to be. What goes around, comes around, I suppose! Will you miss Amazon Books at all? I remember when they had a Peet’s cafe, I would get a cheap muffin, and after some browsing, head out to the Capital One cafe a few blocks away for a 50% off drink.
