Barnes & Noble Inc. (NYSE: BKS) CEO Mitchell Klipper said he would close over a third of the book store firm’s locations. The company has been crushed by online firm Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), much as other large retailers have, which includes Best Buy Co. Inc. (NYSE: BBY).

The Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader has undersold the Amazon Kindle by a wide margin:

“In 10 years we’ll have 450 to 500 stores,” said Mitchell Klipper, chief  executive of Barnes & Noble’s retail group, in an interview with the WSJ last week. The  company operated 689 retail stores as of Jan. 23, along with a separate chain of  674 college stores.

Here is a list of the Barnes & Noble stores by location. The B&N Retail segment includes 691 bookstores as of April 28, 2012, primarily under the Barnes & Noble Booksellers trade name.
