“Interior tenant improvement for a new Books a Million retail store going into an existing space. Scope to include mechanical, electrical, and plumbing as well as display fixtures and some storefront work/paint.”
We're told that the current location will remain open through the holiday shopping season and will start to transition after the new year. Both stores are slated to remain open until the full transition has been made. No news yet on what might be going into the space on Bangor Mall Blvd. after Books-a-Million moves out.
BAM is not the only business from the Bangor Mall area to move over to Stillwater. In January of this past year, Bath & Body Works opened a second storefront in the same shopping complex, right in between the Spectrum store and Famous Footwear.
