Barnes & Noble plans more store closings

NEW YORK Barnes & Noble reportedly plans to continue to shrink its store base.

The head of Barnes & Noble's retail group, Mitchel Klipper, says in an interview published Monday in The Wall Street Journal that the company will have 450 to 500 stores in a decade. That's down from about 689 currently.

Klipper said the chain plans to close about 20 stores a year over the period.

Barnes & Noble is the largest traditional U.S. bookstore operator. But it has been facing tough competition from online retailers and discounters. It has been focusing on its Nook tablet and e-book business for growth.

I don't know why the nook is so popular, it's crap in comparison to the kindle.

They just sell books at cover price.

I hope they don't go under or I will be forced to rely exclusively on buying books online or small book stores with a much smaller selection. Granted I have a Kindle but I do like the experience of going to a book store or a library and browsing for while before I buy something.
Hey Santa It Wasn't My Fault! is online now

Maybe cheap but highly agitating.

Re: Barnes & Noble plans more store closings

I'm oldschool, but I enjoy actually having a book in my hands some nights when I just want to chill out in my recliner with a cold one. Doing it on a Kindle just ain't the same.
