WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Bad news for literature lovers this morning.
The Barnes and Noble at CityPlace is closing soon. A CityPlace official confirms the store will be replaced by an LA Fitness early next year.
The bookstore was one of the first retailers to move into CityPlace when it launched more than 12 years ago.
Sales of books on the internet and the rise in e-books have contributed to the decline of bookstores.
