 The newspaper  reported that store officials would not give a reason for the decision. Main Street has a trio of  bookstores, with the opening of  The Barnes & Noble  UD Bookstore.

The store offers textbooks and school gear/ That  business has been changing  as  online books and materials become more widely used  and book rentals.


The store is believed to have been affiliated with Neebo, a nationwide textbook   retailer. While the Delaware Book Exchange website points to, the store is no longer listed.

Critics of the move of  the Barnes and Noble move to Main Street from the UD campus had complained that the store would put pressure on competitors at the new location.
