Is B. Dalton and Waldenbooks still in business?  Haven't seen one outside of the Starcourt Mall in Hawkins, Indiana...

Same thought crossed my mind until I noted the "j/k" (just kidding, I believe ).

In my area(s) (Southeast PA, and also NY suburbs of Long Island) Dalton died probably nearly 20 years ago, then some years later Waldenbooks locations got absorbed/closed by Borders (owned by same company) until they eventually also went out of business probably 5 or so years ago.  Barnes and Noble is last one standing around here. 

Hope the coffee shop and collectible/toy departments they have integrated into the stores help keep them profitable so there is still a local brick and mortar store to buy books when wanted.

I  still buy mine at our local train store (MB Klein AKA Model Train Stuff.  They just got the Nov/Dec issue in so I'll be seeing them this weekend.

I thought that they just closed the retail outlet.

Dave they are closing their walk-in retail store on Wednesday October 30th to make room for more on line inventory.  I've been a customer since 1958 when I started taking the streetcar from Catonsville.
