Youngstown State University’s Barnes and Noble opens Monday

The store will stock textbooks, YSU apparel, school supplies and books for the general public

The new Barnes and Noble Bookstore on Youngstown State University's campus will open Monday.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The new Barnes and Noble bookstore on Youngstown State University’s campus opened its doors for the first time Monday, and it’s not just for students.

The store has textbooks, YSU gear and school supplies, but there’s also a section for the public, just like you see in other similar stores.

There’s a Starbucks inside as well.

The building has been under construction for nine months.

“I think it’s a nicer environment, more items coming in. I think Barnes and Noble is a well-established bookstore,” said YSU student Shaun McCune. “I’ve been to the one in Boardman, so I’m excited.”

The Barnes and Noble is located at the corner of Fifth and Lincoln avenues. The new location moves the campus bookstore from Kilcawley Center.

The old YSU bookstore inside Kilcawley is now closed.

A grand opening for the store will be held in August when students return to campus for the fall semester.
