1149 S. Main St, Walnut Creek
I was a little early with the scuttlebutt last April, but it’s finally happening; Barnes & Noble is closing this coming January in downtown Walnut Creek. According to the Contra Costa Times, Anthropologie will be relocating from their Mt. Diablo/Locust St. shop. As someone who frequently shopped and browsed here this is quite disappointing although judging from the empty shoppers in their huge video section I’m not entirely surprised. The nearest Barnes & Noble locations will be in Dublin and Emeryville. Swan’s Fine Books is also located a few blocks away on Locust St.
