This NJ Barnes and Noble store is moving, while another is closing
A longtime Barnes and Noble store has announced it is changing address this year, while another of the book retailer’s New Jersey stores was closing with hopes of doing the same.
The Barnes & Noble Springfield store was first slated for closure last year, but then stayed open longer than initially announced.

On Thursday, it was announced that the location would be leaving its longtime Route 22 address, while staying along the highway in Union Township.
“We are so excited to announce that after 30 years we will be moving! Our new store will be located in Union Plaza across from Best Buy, we look forward to seeing you there,” according to an Instagram post by the store.
The new Union store at 2401 US Highway 22 West was slated for a March opening.
Meanwhile, the Barnes and Noble Paramus store was set to close on Feb.11, after 28 years along Route 17.
A Facebook post for the Bergen County location said they were looking into other possible buildings to return to the community, as the landlord had declined to renew their lease.
A similarly longtime store location in Clark shut its doors this past summer, after 24 years along Raritan Road.
In Monmouth County late last year, the Holmdel Barnes and Noble downsized to a different storefront within the same shopping plaza along Route 35.
Since November, it has settled into the space next to Best Buy within Commons at Holmdel, as first reported by Asbury Park Press.
As of January, there were nearly 20 Barnes and Noble stores in NJ listed on the company’s website (including Holmdel and the soon-to-be-opened Union store).
