Bainbridge-- The first Barnes and Noble Bookstore in southwest Georgia is now open in Bainbridge.

While the store is stocked full of textbooks and Bainbridge College apparel, it's open to anyone in the community.  Vice President of Business Affairs, Natalie Higley, said  "I think they'll be able to offer more services to our students, they have more access, our textbook costs will be able to decrease, they have a larger buying power than we've been able to do. They're able to offer many more services, like the authors out there."  

As part of the grand-opening celebration, Barnes & Noble hosted a book signing by two authors from the school, one a professor, the other a student.
