at the Grand Opening at 9AM on Wednesday, November 15th, 2023


New York, NY – November 8, 2023 – Barnes & Noble is thrilled to announce the opening of its new Flower Mound bookstore on Wednesday, November 15th. The new Barnes & Noble is located in The Highlands of Flower Mound (6101 Long Prairie Rd, Flower Mound, TX 75028) adjacent to World market, in the same center as Target and Sephora. Five more new Barnes & Noble bookstores are opening the following week, for a total of 11 new Barnes & Noble locations opening in the month of November alone.

The bookstore will officially open to the public at 9AM CT on Wednesday the 15th, with author Julia Heaberlin cutting the ribbon and signing copies of her books. The new location showcases the highly lauded bookstore design seen in the most recent Barnes & Noble store openings, housing all the best books, toys, games and gifts that customers have come to expect from the nation’s premier bookseller.

“When our previous lease ended earlier this year, we committed to finding a new home here in Flower Mound,” said James Daunt, CEO, Barnes & Noble. “Now we will open the doors to this beautiful new space just in time for the height of holiday shopping. We are very pleased to remain in The Highlands, and even more excited to do so in such a stunning new bookstore. ”

Barnes & Noble is enjoying a period of tremendous growth as the strategy to hand control of each bookstore to its manager has proven so successful. The bookseller is enjoying exceptionally strong sales in its existing stores and has been opening many new stores after over 15 years of declining store numbers. In 2022, Barnes & Noble opened more new bookstores in a single year than it had in the whole decade from 2009 to 2019. The bookseller expects to open over 30 new bookstores in 2023 and over 50 in 2024.

“Our longtime customers have been anxiously awaiting our Grand Opening all summer,” said Store Manager Lisa Bianchi, Barnes & Noble bookseller of 17 years. “The experienced booksellers here in Flower Mound have been hard at work filling shelves and displays with the books we know our customers want. We can’t wait to welcome everyone back to their brand-new Barnes & Noble.”
