New Barnes & Noble bookstore opening at LSUA

Posted: Updated:


ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) -- Louisiana State University at Alexandria now has a new place to get snacks, relax, and get books on campus. Earlier this week, the university unveiled the new bookstore that is ran by Barnes & Noble. They hope to bring a friendly atmosphere to the campus by reaching out to the needs of students, providing great customer service, and being flexible.

Local management is excited about the opportunity. "Barnes & Noble is strictly customer service. This is why we're here, this is what we do," says Erin Weilbaecher, who is the store manager.

The bookstore will also carry robust product offerings with emblematic items from both LSU and LSUA to help bridge the two campuses. They hope that students will flock to the bookstore to get a bite to eat, read, or just hang out.

The Barnes & Noble bookstore has had plenty of success in Baton Rouge and local management believes that it will translate to the LSUA location as well.
