The Barnes & Noble in Manhatten is shuttering it’s doors.  High rent and decreased sales are to blame.  Online discounters taking sales away from traditional retailers.

I don’t think that many people will be too sad. Barnes & Noble’s closing is laced with a touch of irony. Big box stores moved in and virtually eliminated the mom and pop stores. Now it is time for the big box stores to fall to a more agile competitor.
