You know you’re in bad shape when you are forced to mourn the closing of a B. Dalton. But that’s the only bookstore serving the quarter of a million people who reside in Laredo.
“Laredo, Texas, is set to become the largest U.S. city without a bookstore. The B. Dalton in the Mall del Norte, owned by parent company Barnes & Noble, is slated to close next month. When it does, it will leave the city’s close to 250,000 residents without a single bookstore.”
