Project Spotlight: Barnes & Noble Staten Island

The Staten Island community has welcomed a new addition to the Staten Island Mall. On Tuesday, November 20, Barnes & Noble opened a new 20,114-square-foot store. The new store is part of the ongoing Staten Island Expansion Project that Arcadia Electrical has been actively involved in.

Arcadia Electrical was responsible for performing all the electrical work for the new Barnes & Noble store as well as the built-in Starbucks. Some of the new store features that Arcadia helped bring to life were the self-serve kiosks, which allow customers to research and locate books throughout the store, and the installation of community worktables that include easily accessible USB/AC outlets. This project also involved the installation of illuminated bookcases, which are part of two large “book theaters” aimed to enhance curiosity and invite customers to discover new books.
