The Bull Moose Warehouse Store will soon be selling more than music.

Construction began today on a significant expansion of the store on Payne Road that will allow the addition of a book section, renovating space adjacent to the current location.

“We are adding a huge selection of all types of books and making the rest of the store an even nicer place to shop,” owner Brett Wickard said. “Books have proven to be an extremely popular addition to our Bangor store and we are psyched to expand into the space next door and add books here too.”

After the expansion to 13,000 square feet of space, the store will be the largest Bull Moose location. The new space will allow for the addition of more than 20,000 books for sale at 35 percent off the cover price, keeping in line with the chain’s philosophy to offer music, movies and video games at low prices. The store will also be able to carry additional CDs, DVDs and video games.

In addition to increased stock, the expansion is expected to create at least five permanent positions at Bull Moose, as well as provide a significant number of local construction jobs.

During construction, the store will remain open. The expansion is expected to open on Nov. 13.
