The Last Two Barnes & Nobles Stores in Queens Will Be Closing

Within the last few weeks there were announcements of the closure of the last two Barnes & Nobles bookstores in Queens.  One is in Forest Hills on Austin Street while the other is in the Bay Terrace Shopping Center in Bayside.  Over recent years I have bought most of my books on Amazon.com, but it is still nice to browse in a traditional book store.  In both cases the rent was raised so high that the stores could no longer be profitable.

Please sign this petition to keep the store in Bay Terrace open.
