[QUOTE=Dana1963;1768146]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.[/QUOte

A perfect example of "why did they close, I loved that place." All that knowledge under one roof, anything literally under the sun available to the looker for information, better than scanning a laptop or ipad screen. There are the readers that sit up front, read the magazines, put them back, not making a purchase. It would be a huge loss to us and TV if B&N turned off their lights and locked the doors. Where could we go for a rush when we walk into the store and see all that is in front of us to take back to our homes to relish and learn and enjoy. Then we can donate those books so others can have that same "rush."

Yep. Same in our house.
Have been using audio books, and have got used to sitting back listening, and resting the eyes.
Will still go back to library books when available though, as I just love reading with a book in my hand.
Just seems Proper!

Confused by your statement. Are they closing and being replaced by restaurant?

I think it means they were stopping their food service.

Fake News!!

The sign on their door is clear -

“At the request of public health officials, Barnes & Noble The Villages is temporarily closed,” the sign said. “We look forward to welcoming you back when we are able to reopen.”

According to the Barnes and Noble lady I just spoke with, the sign says they will be closed on Memorial Day. They are currently open on other days for curbside pickup. They do plan to open the entire store at some future time, but they have not yet set an opening date. She knew nothing about opening the day after Labor Day.
