Barnes & Noble is the largest book store chain in the United States.

The company began in 1917 when recent Harvard University graduate Gilbert Clifford Noble (1864-1936) bought a New York City book store with his partner, William Barnes (1867-1945). It remained in the care of their families until the company was sold to a conglomerate in 1969. Entrepreneur and businessman Leonard S. Riggio acquired Barnes & Noble in 1971 who took it public several years later.

This store is located at the Waterworks, an outdoor shopping mall in a suburb northeast of Pittsburgh.

Like other outlets in the chain, the Waterworks store features a Starbucks Coffee café and an upscale but welcoming environment.
