Barbara's Bookstore's many staff members are eager to share their vast knowledge (and opinions) with you, the reading public and our valued customers. Here are a few of picks:
The manager of our bookstore in the Burr Ridge Village Center, Georgette has been selling (and reading) books for most of her professional career. A true expert.
Rick is now at the helm of the BookMarket in Glenview after time spent at our Willis Tower operation. He is moving rapidly to put his stamp on the bookstore. Rick enjoys engaging visitors in conversation and is eager to make a recommendation.
Chris has spent many hours, days, weeks, months and years around books in our bookstores. He has a unique insider's perspective on trends and has his own personal opinions on what we should be reading. Chris is making his new home at Barbara's Willis Tower.
Matt, a true connoisseur of popular literature, both fiction and non. Matt operates Barbara's at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in the Galter Pavilion.
Though the Barbara's Bookstore at Macy's demands on Jose are great, he somehow finds the time to satisfy his appetite for the written word. Jose recommends:
Holly is our Childrens' book buyer and she loves her job. She is an avid reader of 'young-adult' titles and has an uncanny knack for stocking the Kids' sections of all our bookstores with nothing but the best selection for all ages.
