Barnes & Noble, 5380 Route 14, will close in August, according to a statement from a company spokesperson.
“The lease at our Crystal Lake location expires this August, and the store will close then,” Jim Lampassi, the company’s vice president of real estate development, said in a statement Wednesday. “We had discussions with the property owner in hopes of negotiating an extension of the lease, but unfortunately, we were unable to come to an agreement.”
IRC Retail Centers owns the Bohl Farm Shopping Center, where the Barnes & Noble is located.
Lampassi said the bookseller is “actively looking” to find another location in the Crystal Lake area “as soon as possible.”
“In the meantime, we look forward to continuing to serve our valued customers at other nearby Barnes & Noble stores,” Lampassi said.
The next closest Barnes & Noble is in West Dundee at Spring Hill Mall, 1468 Spring Hill Mall Blvd.
