Barnes & Noble opens brand new bookstore in Pikesville


Join the bookseller for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and book signing with author Brigid Kemmerer during the grand opening on Wednesday, October 19 at 9 a.m.


Barnes & Noble is delighted to open its new Pikesville bookshop in The Festival at Woodholme, a stone’s throw from the parking lot of its former location. After 19 years of proudly serving the community from their old store, Pikesville Booksellers can’t wait to unveil their beautiful new bookstore (by chance) on Wednesday, October 19e.

The new Barnes & Noble is located at 1809 Reisterstown Rd, Pikesville MD 21208, near Trader Joe’s in space formerly occupied by Pier 1 Imports. It will officially open to the public at 9:00 a.m. ET on October 19 after the previous location closed on October 18. Brigid Kemmerer, New York Times bestselling author of defy the nightwill cut the ribbon on opening day and sign copies of the highly anticipated sequel defend the dawn.

The new store is built with a layout that welcomes readers and encourages those magical moments of discovering their next favorite book, providing Pikesville book shoppers with an intimate browsing experience full of books handpicked by local booksellers. The new location is a few stores away from the company’s partner store, Paper Source, and is sure to be a wonderful addition to the festival at Woodholme Mall. It will join a slate of other Baltimore-based B&Ns such as Bel Air, Ellicott City and Annapolis.

Benefiting from strong book sales and buoyed by the popularity of reading, Barnes & Noble is opening new stores. The new Pikesville is the 11e store to open so far this year, with 30 more in development in the near future. This compares to just 15 total new stores opening in the nine years from 2010 to 2019. “We are very pleased to retain a bookstore in Pikesville where for so many years Barnes & Noble has been a central part of this community,” James said. Daunt, CEO of Barnes & Noble. “Store Manager Carmin Windsor and the team of booksellers have worked diligently to build this brilliant new store, and we look forward to our first holiday season in our new home.”

“Every community needs a bookstore,” said Carmin Windsor, store manager. “I think we will continue to be a place of discovery for Pikesville, and our team has been busy visualizing all possible ways to better connect with readers in the community. I’ve been a B&N bookseller for 22 years and I’m originally from the Baltimore area. The opening of this store was very special to me, and I look forward to welcoming our customers, new and old, into our doors.
