The store didn't stand a chance so it's not shocking that it ended up closing eventually. Seeing bookstores close is just incredibly sad.
This store closed several months ago. Looking now for another spot ro reopen in.
And ain't that just damn sad? The bookstores are closing left and right and we cannot even bring up the interest to shrug at least. To acknowledge it perhaps. Nope, none of that. Is technology progressing so fast that we now only care about of phones... — read more
It was such an embarrassment to find out that the Books-A-Million in Sanford closed. We should never celebrate the closure of a bookstore and honestly, we should do more to support these stores in the future. Admittedly, the 200 N Entrance Rd... — read more
Just noticed last week that Bam had closed, but sign in its place said Hatbor Freight coming soon. What makes this totally bizarre is that it is directing IN FRONT of Home Depot!
This was one of the last booksellers in the Loop. I haven't been there in ages so I wonder (and hope!) that a couple of new bookstores have opened up. It's shameful if the neighborhood has no more bookstores left.
It's more than sad that the BAM! closed on 231 Montrose Ave recently. It is downright depressing. I saw them closing not so long ago and I have to say that the disappointment I felt when I realized that they won't be open anymore in Laurel was simply... — read more
I wish it wasn't so but it is..... BAM! is closed now. I think that we as a society don't read enough books anymore, at least not like we used to in the past. That's why closures like these just make my heart sink. We don't need these closures... — read more
Not sure what changed but Books-A-Million just isn't the same anymore. Whenever I hear them closing a store I get a pang of sadness that quickly fades away and then I just shrug. How depressing.
I wouldn't like it when Books-A-Million doesn't exist at all.
When I saw all the signs outside the store that indicated that they will be closing later this month, my heart literally sank. Books-A-Million is one of my favorite chains. Sadly, the Books-A-Million store on Highway 153 in Hixson will permanently... — read more
I'm glad that it won't close https://www.jaxdailyrecord.com/article/books-a-million-decides-to-keep-jacksonville-beach-store-open
Visited the BAM store in Alexandria, LA today (2020-11-16)and it was closed. The sign said it was closed due to the storm. It appeared that much of the merchandise at least in the front of the store was gone. Is this store closed permanently?
Books a Million is closing their Hixson store. This is such a horrible thing in my mind. The 5230 Highway 153 location deserves to stay open but apparently it will close sometime before Jan. 31, which just simply s—s. It really does just s—. — read more
is it closed? if so will it reopen
There was a store closing recently. Books-A-Million/BAM! closed one of their stores and it's no surprise. They are not the only bookseller that is facing issues like these, sadly. Since last month BAM! is no longer operating in the Mall of Monroe... — read more
It looks like Books-A-Million couldn't compete with Amazon and its ilk. The store will be shuttering for good in January, though the exact date isn't revealed as of yet. The Town Square North store in Owensboro is well beloved. It is by me at least. — read more
They had such a nice wide selection of books to choose from. So sad that they're not open any longer!
I have been wondering lately as to what happened to the BAM! store in Houston on Main Street. It closed shop ages ago but it was one of my favorite Books-A-Million stores but something went downhill in the meantime so they had to close it for some... — read more
I am always so devastated and enraged to see a bookstore shutter. It makes me feel so depressed, I hate when that happens. This Books A Million has shuttered some time ago and I still feel strongly about it. Didn't need to happen.
I completely and utterly adore Books-A-Million and I adored this store as well. When they closed this June I was so dumbfounded I just couldn't believe it. I could see no wrong with this Savannah store on Abercorn St. Perhaps there was some issue... — read more
What's wrong with this store? They were not like this a while ago, what is happening??? Such a drop in quality????
I'm sooo sad now, I had no inkling that they have closed in Charlotte!!! When did this Books-A-Million close??? Anybody know??? I got my favorite Percy Jackson book (Lightning Thief) from this store...
They closed because, according to an employee, the rent for the space doubled and the company refused to renew the lease. This is the last Books-A-Million in the Virginia Beach area and it will close next month on July 10th. Sad, but at least we... — read more
The store in Forest Mall is shutting down by Jan. 31.
