‪Barbara's Bookstore used to be a two-story operation. Although there is still a ceiling sign and arrow on the upper level indicating a second-floor location, the store is now on the lower level of Hawthorn.

There are still cozy places to curl up and read a few pages of a recommended book
before purchasing.

I hope Barbara's a will have a solid home in Hawthorn 2.0. It would be sad to lose a business that has been serving the Chicago area for 59 years.

See my earlier review (March 12, 2019) for details about Barbara's Bookstore.‬

‪Wonder where all the bookstores have gone? We just lost another one, Barnes & Noble, in our neighborhood. If you are a book lover, as I am, don't you just miss browsing through a book store and discovering a book that strikes your fancy? Well, Barbara's Bookstore is a survivor. There are locations from downtown Chicago to O'Hare International Airport to Burr Ridge to Vernon Hills to Glenview, even Boston, Massachusetts. The chain opened on Wells Street in Chicago's Old Town neighborhood in 1963. Now it's gone. But my wife and I were delighted to discover the location at 720 Hawthorn Center in the Hawthorn shopping mall in north suburban Vernon Hills. It's a two-story layout in a former Barnes & Noble that hopes to be a bellwether in a renovated shopping center. We suspect that Barbara's survives while other close because she finds unique locations, sponsors book signings by local authors and offers personal and friendly service. My wife enjoyed tracking down books by her favorite author, Michael Connelly. I sought out some history books, from Civil War to World War II to Alexander the Great. Barbara's is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday, plenty of time to browse and kibitz and sip a cup of Hansa coffee. After nearly six decades, it still works.‬

‪Loved this location. Not too big or small, not over-crammed with books, or any bare shelves. Just right. Helpful staff. Big sale area (yay). If there were "facilities" I would have stayed longer.‬

‪Right now the Hawthorn Mall is going through a major renovation. Barbara's Bookstore is in a wonderful location and although it is not very busy, I truly hope it survives until the mall is back to prior glory. The store is minimally stocked but has areas for great entertainment and arts programs. And having Hansa Coffee in-house is nice. Going to the new location of Barnes and Noble is a parking problem. Barbara's is still convenient and with the remaining stores and restaurants nearby still make it a good choice. We need this unique store to survive; it will be a great part of what is promised to be coming to the mall.‬

‪Last Thanksgiving, iconic Barbara's Bookstore opened a a two-story location in Hawthorn Mall in the former site of Barnes & Noble.

Expect to find local authors and artists featured, as well a branch of a local cafe -- Hansa Coffee Roasters.

There are three book stores within blocks of each other -- Half Price, Barnes & Noble, and Barbara's -- plus book departments in the nearby Wal Mart and Target.

Barbara's is looking to provide a hometown, personal vibe. There are theater productions, poetry slams, etc. on the lower level; story times scheduled every weekend; plus book signings, art fairs, and live jazz. Call the store or check the website to see what's going on before you schedule your visit.

There's always a 15% teacher and military discount. There's also a reciprocal arrangement with Hansa's -- a purchase at one gives you a 10% discount at the other.‬
