Barnes and Noble is taking over the College of Charleston bookstore at 160 Calhoun Street. The switch will be official in February. The bookstore is currently managed by Follett Higher Education Group, which owns over 600 higher education bookstores across the country. Student shoppers can expect the new owners to make some layout changes, though they’ll still have all the books they need for class along with a larger periodical section. The College will join the ranks of other schools with Barnes & Noble-run bookstores such as Harvard, Yale, Georgia Tech, and our very own USC.
