I've read a few articles saying they have had declining sales the last couple years but only speculation that they could close.

They have been rumored to go out of business one year after they opened.
The one in TV survived the closing of several B&N stores a couple of years back.

It would not be a surprise if they closed (or opened). Great spot for Trader Joe's or _ _ ? _ _.

Not sure what makes people make up crap.

Google is your friend.

Barnes & Noble Closes over 400 Stores due to COVID-19

“When a closed store is permitted to reopen, we will do so, and we intend to rehire.”

Strange how people rush to put out fake news. Long term do not think they will survive but why not let them announce if they will be permanently closing.

Large book stores is a biz model that is unsustainable in the digital world

I thought I would never want to use a kindle but with library closed had no choice and have gotten used to it. Lots of other folks have probably done the same sounding the deathe knell for the store chain

Except on college campuses where taxpayers pay the bill. Why can't textbooks be all digital?

Why buy books use the County Library or have books downloaded ebook or kindle even Amazon is a better deal if you really want print format to keep. Barnes &Noble for free wifi and coffee.
