Barnes & Noble’s is following Border’s footstep

Filed under: Economy — admin @ 12:52 am

On 2/6/2013, I read a rather sad story on The Wall Street Journal “B&N Aims To Whittle Its Stores For Years”– Mitchell Klipper, chief executive of Barnes & Noble’s, says the bookstore will close a third of its stores in the next decade. This further confirms the decline of the physical book stores when facing competitions from online bookstores like Amazon.

First, we saw Border’s bookstores lost its battle in the Internet age. Now, the inevitable thing seems to happen to Barnes & Noble bookstore.

It is sad as we have spent so many hours in these bookstores and so many good memories are associated with these places. And now they are on the road to be history. What can you do? Nothing.
