Books-A-Million pushes back opening

The Books-A-Million set to open in Spotsylvania Towne Centre in August has pushed back its opening date.

The soft opening will be Aug. 18, with the larger, grand opening the weekend of Aug. 26-28, said Joe Bell, with Spotsylvania Towne Centre’s coporate office.

The store will be in in the 26,000-square-foot space currently occupied by Joseph–Beth Booksellers at The Village at Towne Centre, the open-air section of Spotsylvania Towne Centre.

Joseph–Beth filed for Chapter 11 protection earlier this year and closed its retail operation at the end of June.
