“When can we get a book store in New Rochelle?” For twenty years, I have heard that question from countless residents, and I’ve never had a good answer . . . until now.
Barnes & Noble is coming to New Rochelle.
Their new 9,000 square foot store (complete with a Starbucks cafe) will open in New Roc City this fall. Here’s a full press release.
Big thanks are in order for Monroe College, which has partnered with Barnes & Noble to make this happen.
Of course, no single store can transform an entire commercial area. Achieving our vision for downtown New Rochelle will require patience, persistence, and many other investments and openings. But this sure helps!
