Bradley’s Book Outlet has announced that all of its stores will be closing, including the DuBois Mall location.
“The past couple of years have been a struggle with the stores overall not producing a profit,” said Owner Mike Paper in a press release. “I was OK with that for several reasons — first and foremost it kept the jobs of the people I admire and respect, which is what makes this such a difficult decision. Due to the virus and the viability of many of our malls, we have reached a point where the stores are losing money and I don’t see a path forward for a turnaround.”
According to the release, a liquidation sale will start this Friday.
A few stores do remain profitable and the owner is entertaining all offers to ensure employees still have their jobs, the release said.

DuBois Mall, 5522 Shaffer Road, DuBois, Pa.
Nittany Mall Suite #614, 2901 E. College Ave., State College, Pa.
