NEW YORK — An independent book store in New Jersey will be the largest in the nation, selling Star Wars books, movies and other books that were previously sold in bookstores.

The Star Wars Bookstore, located at 1325 N. Jersey Ave., will open in the first quarter of 2019, according to the New Jersey Booksellers Association.

It will be located at the same space that was occupied by the Star Wars Store, which closed last fall.

In September, the New York Post reported that Star Wars Books was closing its doors in New England.

The store had been owned by bookseller Christian Bookstore since 1995.

The store is expected to open in mid-March 2019.
