Took our grandson, and he loved it. Great selection of educational material.

Great location! Especially if you need quick gifts. They've done a great job with many small gifts through the front of the store. Of course the book selection is great too! (FYI- Starbucks in location. Buy your books first, you'll get a Starbuck's coupon!).

It’s been a while since I’ve shopped in a Barnes and Noble. I came in today not exactly sure what type of book(s) I was looking to read. I’ve always been a fan of classics, and there was a beautiful section towards the back that caught my eye. I absolutely loved the recommendation notes from the employees! They helped me sort through some options I may have otherwise overlooked :)

Hands down the best customer service I have received in years. I was on my way to work and wanted to get a book as a gift for my coworkers. I called and spoke to Lauren who said the computer showed they had one in stock. Normally that would have been the end of the conversation, the next step is what changes things from a good customer service representative to a great one, she said let me make sure we have it in stock! I was worth a few minutes of her time . I hope that Barnes & Noble gives her some kind of recognition for her dedication to customers as she is the reason I will continue to shop at this location even if it means going out of my way to get there!

Great book selections. Nice place to go with children as well. They have a children section with books and toys. The cafe has tables to sit and work.

Barnes& Noble is a serene and comforting area to relax and get work done. In addition, one can also buy books and other knick knacks. A great place for the entire family.

Had a great experience in the record/music section. The associate there had some great suggestions for a first record player for my son. Also a decent selection of records.

I always love sitting down and reading books at Barnes and nobles, this location was very peaceful. I finally realized that it isn’t a Starbucks inside it, it’s just a cafe serving some Starbucks stuff.

A nicely sized B&N. The staff was kind and helpful and I was able to find a great book for my wife who is a teacher. I didn't go, but the cafe was pretty large and seemed to be a nice place to sit and read.
