Barnes & Noble announced in May that it would depart its longtime home in downtown Bellevue, the former Belle Lanes bowling alley on 106th Avenue Northeast, for Crossroads . That new location will open on Wednesday, the bookseller recently announced. CEO James Daunt said in a statement, “Over the past few years, we have seen a renaissance amongst physical booksellers with growing book sales and very successful new bookstore openings. We are delighted to be able to invest in this beautiful new bookstore here in Bellevue.” Barnes & Noble also opened a new store last year at the Village at Totem Lake . The Pacific Place store closed early in the pandemic; that space is still vacant. Onni Group is planning a major redevelopment back on 106th, but hasn't announced a start date.
