This was in the Los Angeles Times a couple of months back:
Laredo, Texas, is set to become the largest U.S. city without a bookstore. The B. Dalton in the Mall del Norte, owned by parent company Barnes & Noble, is slated to close next month. When it does, it will leave the city’s close to 250,000 residents without a single bookstore.
Actually, this isn’t quite accurate. While Laredo doesn’t have a chain bookstore, a Yahoo search reveals that it does appear to have a trade paperback used bookstore, a Christian bookstore, and an adult bookstore.
Oh, and another Yahoo search reveals 137 churches.
221 places to buy clothing.
And 14 spots where you can purchase weapons and bullets.
