ST. PETERSBURG -- Walden Books reopened Tuesday in Tyrone Square Mall after a move into a larger space that once was occupied by rival B Dalton, which closed its mall store at the end of the year.

The arrival of a new, large Borders bookstore on the mall property prompted the changes.

"Walden and Borders are owned by the same company. There was no way two little stores could compete. We wanted to have just one store in the mall, and that was Walden," said Scott Rolston, manager of Tyrone Square Mall.
