Correction: An earlier version of this story said the decision to not renew Barnes & Noble's lease was made by CBRE. CBRE manages the property, which is owned by Invesco, but does not make leasing decisions.
The Barnes & Noble located within Vanderbilt Square—at 3003 W. Holcombe Blvd., Houston, near the Buffalo Speedway intersection—will close June 19.
The closure resulted from a decision by the site's landlord to not renew the store’s lease, according to Barnes & Noble store officials. Community Impact Newspaper has reached out to Invesco, the property's owner, for comment.
"We did not want to close the store," Barnes & Nobel Director of Store Planning, Janine Flannigan, said. "We had just been asked to leave."
The store is having a closing sale in which items are being sold for a 25% discount.
Other Houston-area locations of Barnes & Noble can be found in the River Oaks shopping center on West Grey Street and in the Town & Country Village. 713-349-0050. www.barnesandnoble.com
