Butler Enterprises announced that Barnes & Noble will be coming to Gainesville in early 2024.
The popular retail bookstore will be opening its new location at 3728 SW Archer Road.
Barnes & Noble operates roughly 600 retail bookstores nationally. The previous Barnes & Noble location in Gainesville closed in December 2013 when the chain decided not to renew its lease at Butler Plaza.
The new Barnes & Noble location will offer books, toys, arts and crafts, games, puzzles and music. The new store will also host author events, book club meetings and storytime programming.
The store will house the Barnes & Noble Café where guests can order and enjoy beverages.
Store hours will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
The grand opening will be announced at a later date.
