This bookstore chain had 798 stores at the peak of their
success. They faltered in the 1980s and the chain was sold to
Barnes Noble. By 1997, they'd gone from 798 to 528
locations as they closed and relocated outlets. They dwindled
significantly after that, and in February of 2013, B. Dalton
closed their final location in Washington D.C.
