You'll find what you need here! 12/8/2006

Barnes and Noble has it all. They have tons of books, movies and music as well as a coffee shop! I love spending time here but it's a little depressing because I can't afford to take all the books home with me. :) They have a good selection and if you can't find what you want, you can go to the help desk and order it and they'll contact you when it comes in. The children's section is pretty good size as well as the magazine section. They have calendars, bookmarks, pens and more. If I could spend all day here, I honestly would. The staff is friendly, the store clean and has a very friendly feel. more

Books, Movies, Music! HERE'S THE PLACE! 7/21/2005

I Reccommend this store for, Books, Movies, Music! This store has everything you could imagine. That coolest thing is that they have an awsome staff that help you with everything and anything you want, and they also have computers to search the Store. Now? how cool is that? :) more

cafe/book store 6/15/2005

This is a big book store, but frankly they never have the items I am looking for in stock. I have better luck finding the stuff on line for cheaper. They will special order for you but it takes a long time to come in. It is cool that they have a starbucks coffee shop in here though. more

Barnes and Noble is a large book store with a decent selection. Sometimes I am surprised though that they do not have books in stock. The empoyees are usually helpful but sometimes you have to wait a while before someone helps you. more

book 6/7/2005

Barnes and Noble is not my favorite chain book store. They have a special program where members get discounts but you have to pay to be a part of that program. Borders has a similar program that is free. The staff here is usually helpful in located specific books, and the store is always clean. They also have a starbucks coffee in here which is great and convienent if you are in the mood for a coffee while browsing. more

barnes and noble books 5/22/2005

This is a fairly large book store, probably tied for the biggest book store in town along with Borders. They have a wonderful selection of items, but occasionally have what I need out of stock. They do special order items that I believe take a week or two to come it, but sometimes that's too late for what I need. But I do enjoy the coffee shop in here (Starbucks). It is nice to be able to sit down read a book and drink some delicious coffee. more

Barnes and Noble is a great book store and they never let me down. Everytime I go in here that have exactly what I am looking for at other places I have to worry if they have the item in stock. Also they have great hours. more

books 5/12/2005

Barnes and Noble is probably the biggest book store in town if not the biggest it is amongst the biggest. They have topics on everything you could think of. The store is layed out nice and it is easy to find what your looking for. I really like the magazine selection to, and they have a coffee shop inside of here to. It's nice to be able to sit down read and drink coffee at the same time. more

Book store 4/22/2005

I really enjoy going here in from time to time to just sit and relax and read magazines. They have a huge variety of magazines and they let you sit in the store or in the starbucks coffee shop and read them for free. They have great hours, this is a top rated store in my opinion. I have been going here for a long time. more
