Author Jonathan Graziano to Host Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony and Book Signing at the Grand Opening at 10AM on Wednesday, March 6th, 2024

Victor, NY – Barnes & Noble is thrilled to announce the opening of its new Victor bookstore on Wednesday, March 6th. The new Barnes & Noble is located in the Eastview Mall (805 Eastview Mall, Victor, NY 14564) next to Pottery Barn and near Champps and Starbucks.

The bookstore will officially open to the public at 10AM EST on Wednesday the 6th, with author Jonathan Graziano cutting the ribbon and signing copies of his 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.

“The more brick-and-mortar bookstores there are in the world, the better we build readers in all communities,” said James Daunt, CEO, Barnes & Noble. “We are very happy to be joining the many charming bookstores in this county, and to bring the people of Victor a bookstore of their own. All readers will feel at home in this beautiful new Barnes & Noble.”

Barnes & Noble is enjoying a period of tremendous growth as the strategy to hand control of each bookstore to its local booksellers has proven so successful. The bookseller is experiencing exceptionally strong sales in its existing stores and has been opening many new stores after over 15 years of declining store numbers. In 2023, 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 50 new bookstores in 2024.

The Victor location is one of two new Barnes & Noble bookstores to open on March 6th, alongside a new location in Columbia, SC. Two more new Barnes & Noble bookstores are due to open their doors in March, in Gainesville, FL, and Meriden, CT. Each grand opening has drawn enthusiastic crowds that wrap around the building, filling the store as the ribbon is cut.

“As a longtime bookseller, I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of bringing Barnes & Noble to Victor,” said Store Manager Dennis Mulhearn, Barnes & Noble bookseller of 26 years. “Our booksellers have been hard at work curating our selection for this community, and we can’t wait to welcome readers into their new Victor Barnes & Noble.”
