So, are the brick and mortar book stores dead?
"lack of foot traffic in the stores"? The one in Knoxville must be rather above
average then - always a full parking lot, always lots of people in the store
and attached pseudo-Starbucks...
If they go, I shall be REALLY annoyed, because they're the last big dependable
chain in Knoxville. Ed McKay's is huge but it's used books; Books-a-Million,
the last time I checked, didn't bother to put their subject sections in
...ah, the Nook division specifically is to blame. Okay got it. The actual
stores are doing okay or even good; the Nook division had a $475 million loss.
