Yeah, I've been waiting for that one. Sad. The slow death of the bookstore in general is a great sadness to me.

There was a time when I lived in towns with great independent and used bookstores  (Madison, Berkeley, to a lesser extent Geneva), when I would have welcomed this news, seeing B&N as the big interloper intent on putting long-term "serious" bookstores out of business. I regarded B&N as a bookstore killer. For one thing, no B&N ever smelled like a bookstore. At best, they smell like coffee shops. At worst, they smell like any big box store.

Then I moved out of those places and my nearest big city is Fresno... and I realized that B&N coming into a place like that or into the town I grew up in, was the difference between having a decent bookstore and not having one.

>>Winn-Dixie

I have a Publix and Winn-Dixie almost the same distance from my house. 99% of the time I choose Publix even though it is a bit more expensive overall. Just a better overall shopping experience.

And based on the clientele I see at both stores I can see why the cuts in food stamps could have a bigger effect on Winn-Dixie vs. Publix.

>bookstores

On the other hand, I've been seeing all these "Little Library" stands popping up at schools and in the front of people's houses.  I think they are a great thing.

There is one of these by one of the parks my kids like going to and they love getting books from there and dropping off old ones.

>Claire's

Claire’s Stores Inc., which is said to be preparing a bankruptcy to ease its crushing debt load, is simultaneously working on a second problem: its deep reliance on malls.

Generations of American girls went to Claire’s to have their ears pierced and browse the selection of jewelry, headbands and other accessories. With foot traffic slowing at many U.S. malls, the company now hopes to catch customers at the local drugstore or supermarket.
