Barnes & Noble has said that stores are their future, but the retailer is still closing locations.
This includes the B&N store in Detroit, which is scheduled to close early next year.

The B&N store in Hawaii is more fortunate; The Maui Times reports that this location, which is one of only a handful of bookstores on the island, was granted a last minute stay of execution:
Barnes & Noble in the Lahaina Gateway Center will not be closing at the end of the year as had been planned, reported the store’s manager Cindy Mauricio on Wednesday.
“We are not foreseen to close. We are back in business,” said Mauricio, who was overjoyed after just hearing the news from her district manager late Wednesday afternoon.
