Oh Barnes and Noble…I keep saying you aren’t Borders, and then you go and stock crock pots for the holidays.
Cooking appliances. In a bookstore. Not even near the cookbooks, just chilling near bargain titles. Why? Did the NOOK line open the floodgates? Are you morphing into Target by carrying appliances while Target morphs into a bookstore with their expanded book sections? Is it bizarro land?
I just hope this isn’t B&N’s sparkly Jesus piggy bank. A few years ago, Borders sold sparkly, Jesus shaped piggy banks. Then they went out of business. Coincidence? I think not.
Please stick to selling books, B&N. Nobody walks into their local store and thinks “Whoo hoo, I can get a calendar, a gift card, and an appliance to slow cook tender meats.” No one wanted sparkly piggy banks either, and we all know how that story ended.
