Maui’s Barnes & Noble, the only retailer of new books on the island, will move to a temporary space in Kahului while they look for a new permanent location. Store officials announced in October that they would close at the end of 2017 when their lease expired, but changed their minds after an outpouring of community support. The Kahului store opens on March 12.
The Toronto Chapters store in North York closed on January 2 after 18 years of operation. Indigo Books & Music, which owns Toronto Chapters, is opening a new location nearby in summer or early fall.
