Default Baltimore Barnes and Noble is Gone Forever

I'm not sure if this is the correct area for this post, but I wanted to take a moment and lament the loss of another Barnes and Noble, this one in Downtown Baltimore, Power Plant store. This was one of my favorite spots for bluray hunting. The person running the movie section was clearly a fan, and she curated one hell of a section. I was always impressed. I found Arrow, Blue Underground, Scream Factory - and other boutiques that I didn't think a store in the States carried except for Grindhouse and the like.

Soundgarden a few blocks away from Power Plant B&N has a really great horror selection of boutique blurays, but I loved this Barnes for the atmosphere. It was right on the water in the Inner Harbor, and had an amazing small aquarium upstairs (it was next door to the National Aquarium, so I guess this was a small nod to its neighbor).

I found out about its closing the day before, so I didn't get to say goodbye and pickup some more movies. It's a shame, just another example of a pre-virus world that we won't get back. The B&N I use weekly is still here at the Avenue at White Marsh, but it's another small crack in the world of retail that I don't think has a bright future. I can spend an hour in B&N, coffee in hand, and just pick up random stuff to take home with me.There's not too many places I can say this about.

Man, if we ever have the ability to go back in time, I'll take any year between 1980 and before 2020 for $400, Alex...

***Edit, I tried to post this to the movies section, not collectibles.

Sorry to hear that your Luke. I love how I get this cozy feeling inside Barnes & Noble even though it's a large store.

Hopefully you still have one not too far away.

Yes,I heard about this.Been there many times when I was down at the Inner Harbor(I even was there as a little kid when there was like a amusement park in there in the mid 80's).Would kill atleast a hour when I was there.The last time I was down there was summer 2019.Didn't go there this year for obvious reasons.

I do have a Barns & Noble right down the street near me in Pikesville.It's five minutes from my home and I occasionally go there for certain things.Haven't been there recently though.

Oh wow, that's a shame. I used to stop by there whenever I went to the Inner Harbor, which was usually a few times a year. Damn, what a loss.

Sorry to hear that Luke. It really sucks that they’re closing that store. Is there any other locations other than The Inner Harbor location? I fortunately have three near me in New Jersey, and during the lockdown it really was shitty that my wife and I couldn’t hang at our local B&N. Hopefully you’ll find another to shop and hang out in.

Ever since my locations reopened, it’s been packed all the time.

Well that sucks. I don't live in Baltimore currently (born and raised there though) but I make fairly regular trips there for concerts and such, and my wife and I loved going to that store since we don't have any near where we live.
