Readers searching for bargains should head to Mercato by Saturday.

Books-A-Million will shutter its doors for good, and the store has offered sales since it announced its closing in January. Sales include 20 percent off all books, 40 percent off most non-book items and half-off greeting cards.

The two-story location now occupied by the bookstore will be a Nordstrom Rack store, a retail outlet with designer clothing and accessories 50 to 60 percent off original Nordstrom prices.

When it opened in Oct. 31, 2008, the Books-A-Million superstore was one of the first stores in Mercato. Its 26,000-square-foot space also makes it one of the largest in the mixed-use center in North Naples. Only spaces occupied by Whole Foods Market and Silverspot Cinema are larger than the bookstore's retail space.
