Barnes & Noble Signs Lease for Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Store; Store Will Open in November 2007

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 20, 2006--Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE: BKS), the world's largest bookseller, announced it has signed a lease agreement to open a new Barnes & Noble bookstore in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The bookstore, expected to open in November 2007, will be located in The Avenue Murfreesboro at 2615 Medical Center Parkway. The store will stock close to 200,000 book, music, DVD and magazine titles and include a cafe serving Starbucks coffee.

Barnes & Noble's bookselling innovations have established it as America's top retail brand for quality. For the fifth year in a row, the EquiTrend® Brand Study by Harris Interactive® named Barnes & Noble number one in quality among the country's retail brands. The new store will feature:

-- The Barnes & Noble Membership Program. Designed for Barnes & Noble's best customers, this program gives Members an additional 10 percent off virtually every item in Barnes & Noble stores and online at Barnes & Noble.com. The annual fee is $25.

-- Rapid special-order service. Can't find it on the shelf? Barnes & Noble's massive warehouse inventory is available in real-time, enabling its booksellers to order and confirm the availability of over one million titles at the click of a button.

-- Large-scale children's departments. Bigger than most typical bookstores and stocking over 15,000 titles in an easy-to-browse environment, "Barnes & Noble Jr." departments are designed to appeal to children, parents, teachers and librarians. Children's story hours will be held three times a week.

-- Advanced technology music-listening system. The store's music department will feature RedDotNet, the most advanced listening technology. RedDotNet enables customers to listen to any CD in the store, sampling up to 200,000 music titles by simply passing it under a scanner. Connected to the company's online electronic music catalog, the store's listening stations make "browsing with your ears" a reality.

-- Giant Newsstand. The store's newsstand stocks over 2,000 titles, including hundreds of hard-to-find specialty magazines, out-of-town and even foreign newspapers.

-- Wi-Fi Service. AT&T Wi-Fi(SM) service allows customers to use their laptop computers and personal digital assistants anywhere in the store or cafe to communicate online, surf the Internet and connect to corporate networks at speeds 50 to 100 times as fast as a dial-up connection. A single two-hour session costs $3.95, and an annual membership with unlimited access to Barnes & Noble and more than 10,700 AT&T Wi-Fi hot spots is available for $19.95 per month (with a one year commitment).

It's been fun seeing the progress on The Avenue as I drive by several times a week. I think it's really going to be a fun place to shop and hang out. Best Buy and Barnes And Nobles are two things that I think will be really appreciated here.

So where is Avenue in relation to Gateway? Gateway is where the new hospital is going, right?

So where is Avenue in relation to Gateway? Gateway is where the new hospital is going, right?

The Gateway district spans from exit 76 all the way to Broad Street bordering Old Nashville Highway from Thompson lane & Broad (North) to Medical Center Parkway & Broad (South). Additional information may be found here:

The Avenue project will be located directly across from the Embassy Suites Hotel right off exit 76. It is highly visible from I-24 as several buildings have been erected. I'd say at this rate it could actually be the summer of next year when this thing opens. Middle Tennesee Medical Center will be located on the corner lot between Medical Center Parkway and Wilkinson Pike. The sign for the hospital has been there about four years and nothing has been built. I think the hospital is still waiting on the State's written consent.
