The country’s smallest Barnes & Noble opens at Mosaic

Rebecca Cooper

Books cover shelves but also are hung on wall-mounted shelves on columns and pillars throughout the store to maximize inventory.   While Barnes & Noble rolled out a prototype store with a full-service restaurant and bar in Ashburn’s One Loudoun development in 2017, the stores going forward are more likely to focus on the limited-service cafe model of food and beverage offerings, Morabito said. Barnes & Noble is looking to expand the quick-service food offerings at its cafes, he added.  Barnes & Noble is always looking for more opportunities in the D.C. region and beyond, though Morabito wouldn’t say whether there are any more planned for the region, including in the District proper, at this time.
