In Elkhart, Indiana it is not the corporate headquarters of Barnes and Nobles. At family owned and operated it’s Jon, Rose, and their 4 kids. Our bookstore is currently located where Walden’s Bookstore use to be. When we first opened we were visited by some of Walden’s old customers who had not been in for a while and did not realize that Walden’s was no longer in business. They walked in confused and lost and were caught off guard by the lack of cookie cutter rows of books they were accustomed to seeing in Walden’s.
