Reston Barnes & Noble to Close Thursday

Store at Spectrum's last day is Thursday.

Reston's Barnes & Noble will shut its doors for good Thursday.

Most of the merchandise that has been on markdown since December is gone from the store and many shelves have been dismantled. There is some merchandise still available — such as CDs in the music department and bestseller-list books — as those will likely be shipped to a nearby location's inventory at the last minute.

In any case, time is running out if you have been meaning to visit. The Spectrum Starbucks will remain open. The Container Store is set to open in the bookstore space this fall.
