Barnes & Noble to Shutter One-Third of Stores Over the Next 10 Years

Barnes & Noble has put up an excellent fight over the past few years against the rising tide of digital competitors like the iPad, Kindle Fire, etc., but it would seem that the bookseller has still come up a bit short, as the The Wall Street Journal reports that the company has plans to shut down nearly 20 stores per year over the course of the next decade. Just last week, we learned that Barnes & Noble had a rough holiday sales season with a 10.9 percent sales decrease from the previous year’s holiday season.
